1 Gone in 20 seconds - 3 x plasma tv screens in South Africa
Businesses and homes containing and displaying expensive plasma screen TVs are currently under attack in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. More and more of these sought-after items are being stolen and it is suspected that there is a lucrative black market for them. A business in Port Elizabeth lost three large plasma screen TV's at 03h52 in the morning. The CCTV footage shows how quickly the brazen burglars broke down the front door and gained entry into the premises. The three men dispersed inside the building and simply pulled three plasmas from the display wall and carried them to a vehicle that was waiting in the parking area. All of this took place within 20 seconds. A case of burglary was opened with the police, who will investigate.
