Two people were arrested in connection with a break-in at musician Lerato Lira Molapo’s house in Randburg.
A 24-year-old man was caught with some of the stolen items at a house not far from Molapo’s home, said Gauteng police Lieutenant-Colonel Katlego Mogale today.
“The second suspect, aged 26, alleged to be the owner of the house, handed himself to the police.”
The burglary happened last night while Molapo and her husband were attending a Women’s Day celebration.
The thieves apparently entered the house through the back sliding door which was broken, said Mogale.
They stole items including 10 SA Music Awards, laptops, iPods, a music system, cash from the safe and a spare key for the safe.
Police recovered two iPods, two MAC Apple laptops, an amplifier, a cellphone and an Xbox 360.
The men were expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
