Boma robbery

The burglar bars were forced open.

BURGERSFORT – A man has fallen prey to a break-in once again at the Boma Housing Units.

The Steelburger/Lydenburg News reported last year about Mr Leonel Veaguiar, who was held at gunpoint on November 20 and beaten repeatedly over the head with a steel object while a rope was tightened around his neck.

It took him a long time to recover after the incident. He had since upgraded the security around his house, but this did not deter thieves when his house was targeted again on June 16 around 11.30.

Luckily Veaguiar was not at home this time. The perpetrators caused a lot of damage. They stole everything of value. Of the items taken include his 9mm Astra pistol, a computer and jewellery, just to name a few.

“When I arrived home I immediately saw that something was wrong. When I entered the house papers were lying scattered all over the place and some of the keys were missing,” he said.

He immediately pressed the panic button and within seven minutes a team from National Guarding responded and assisted him. A while later the police arrived to investigate the scene and take fingerprints at the back window where the culprits had gained access.

Veaguiar said that he was grateful for the quick response and action, and for the swift work by the police. “The thieves knew exactly what they were looking for.” He has now installed even better security at his house.
