The suspect reportedly gained access to the shopping complex  at Emabhizeni along 4th Avenue through one of the shops’ windows before using the ceiling to enter other shops to steal various goods.

A supermarket employee told The Chronicle that he saw the thief in the act and when chased after him, he panicked and fell from the ceiling on Tuesday morning, February 23.

The employee said, “I was just arriving for work when I heard sounds at the back. I made a follow up as it was still quiet with most people not having reported to work yet. I saw the thief trying to jump from the ceiling.

“I managed to climb into the ceiling and chased after him and he fell into a shop next door to us commonly known as China Shop. Security details managed to catch him before he fled from the scene.”

It was learnt that the thief was immediately apprehended by the police and placed in custody as members of the public bayed for his blood.

Matabeleland South provincial police spokesperson Inspector Loveness Mangena confirmed the incident, saying the thief is in police custody and assisting detectives in their investigations.

Mangena said, “I can confirm that we arrested a man in Gwanda who had broken into shops around the CBD”
