Johannesburg - The City of Johannesburg has offered a R25 000 reward after important documents were stolen in the early hours of Saturday morning. 

CCTV footage has placed a single male suspect at the scene, who was allegedly seen damaging two glass windows and a wooden door to force entry into the chief whip's offices. He was also carrying a backpack when the break-in took place between midnight and 1am.

JMPD spokesperson, Wayne Minaar, said the police were yet to establish exactly which documents had been stolen during the break-in. 

"The footage shows the suspect clearly, the matter is being investigated by SAPS and group forensics unit of the city," said Minaar. 

"The city has offered a reward of R25 000 to anyone who can help with successful arrest and conviction of the suspect," he said. 


Minaar said they would only be able to establish which documents had been stolen when officials returned to work next week.
