A gang of house break-in suspects left a trail of destruction behind them when they fled the scene of the crime in Morningside after a neighbour shot at them with a paintball gun, last week.
Blue Security community and media liaison officer, Andreas Mathios said the gang of three suspects attempted to break into a property in Hampden Road.
A neighbour spotted them trying to break in and shot at them with a paintball gun.
The gang turned and fled in a blue BMW in the direction of Windermere Road, where they crashed into a motorist’s vehicle.
The suspects did not stop at the scene of the crash and continued to flee in their vehicle with the motorist in pursuit.
“They turned into Innes Road, where they hijacked a motorist, who was sitting in his car which was parked at the side of the road. The gang abandoned the BMW and fled the scene in the hijacked vehicle,” he added.
Durban Central SAPS attended the scene of the crime and confirmed that the BMW had been reported as a stolen vehicle.
“The police recovered two computers and housebreaking implements from the vehicle,” Mathios said.
