At approximately 03h55 this morning the Marshall Security Emergency Dispatch Centre was alerted to a house breaking incident which had occurred at a well known complex on Compensation Beach Road in the Ballito area.
Reports from the scene indicated that unknown amount of suspects managed to steal the homeowners cellphone and vehicle keys through an open window.
