CBD sports shop burgled

Several businesses in the Paarl CBD have recently been targeted by thieves, the latest being SportSA in Main Street, Paarl.

The store was vandalised and burgled early on Monday morning (8 July). A passerby said he saw one suspect, at 06:10, loading merchandise from the store into a white Toyota Avanza with a CA (Cape Town) number plate. The passerby alerted the police who, in turn, alerted the store’s owner, Shukri Moerat, in Cape Town. He arrived around 07:45 to find his shop in disarray.

Moerat said the robbers had apparently parked their vehicle in front of Le Perle, the print and decor shop next door to SportSA. A large cement block was hurled through the shop’s display window for the robbers to gain access.

A visibly upset Moerat said the robber stole more than R100 000 worth of athletic shoes and branded soccer jerseys before fleeing. What’s more, he added, some bypassers were also seen helping themselves to his store’s merchandise before the police arrived.

“People were walking by and just took what they wanted,” he said.

Moerat said a woman employed at Santam in the same building then kept watch over things until police arrived, and the looting stopped.

Paarl police are investigating a case of business robbery. No arrests had yet been made.
