Durban - Police are tight-lipped about a burglary at the Chatsworth police station, where thieves made off with an undisclosed amount of cash that was kept in an office.
The theft took place in an office block in the new state-of-the art complex on Wednesday, and yesterday a task team was established to investigate the incident.
Police spokesman, Colonel Jay Naicker, said the amount stolen could not be disclosed because investigations were under way.
A source said that police arrived for work in the morning and found the door to the finance section open and the office ransacked. It is unclear if the money was kept in a safe or drawer. Police are unsure what time the theft took place.
DA MP Dianne Kohler Barnard, the party’s spokeswoman on policing matters, said the incident had left many unanswered questions.
