A Windhoek burglar’s luck finally ran out when he got busted for house-breaking with visible signs of being high on drugs after his colleague sped off with a plastic bag full of stolen goods.  

A Khomasdal family reported to The Villager that Mario and his unidentified colleague broke into their house at around 10hr00 of Friday after they had managed to cut off the alarm system. 

Unfortunately for them, the alarm system had already alerted the house owners before they could silence it. 

“It was 10 O’clock in the morning, I got a call from the G4S guys. I told them that there is nobody at home, they must just come to the house. They could not enter the house because they did not have access to my yard. When my husband arrived at the house, the entrance was open,” said one family member who did not want to be identified for security reasons.   

When the G4S team arrived on the scene they failed to make any arrests before leaving, only for the thieves to later flee out of the house in full view of the owners.
