Police arrested a suspected burglar after a Goodwood man, who arrived home on Saturday February 15 to find his garage door open and camping gear missing, went looking for the culprits.

According to Goodwood police spokesman Captain Wayne Theunis, the resident spotted two men in Murray Street with his belongings. 

One of them ran off, but the homeowner caught the other suspect and handed him over to the police.

The 49 year-old suspect appeared in the Goodwood Magistrate’s Court on a charge of housebreaking.
