It is said that a suspect forced open a window and entered one of the offices in the administration block. It is said that a suspect was arrested inside the office busy disconnecting a computer. Police also recovered two memory sticks inside his pocket.

A preliminary investigation has revealed that the memory sticks belong to a member who works at the police station. A 32 year old suspect is due to appear at the Humansdorp Magistrate’s Court on 24 May 2019, on charges of housebreaking and theft.
