Honeydew police are looking for three bogus meter readers who committed a robbery at a house in Northwold Gardens after claiming to be meter readers on 10 May.

According to the spokesperson for the station, Captain Balan Muthan, the suspects, armed with a firearm and a knife, tricked a domestic worker to gain entry into the property.

“The suspects knocked at the gate, with one armed with a firearm, the second with a knife and the last one unarmed. The domestic worker heard them and went to talk to them. They told the domestic worker that they were there to check a meter box, and she opened for them,” Muthan explained.

He added that they then tied the worker up with a shoe lace, searched the house and took a television, clothes, carpet and two cell phones. They left in a white car, with an unknown make and registration.

This incident follows a few weeks after another house was robbed in Randpark Ridge, where a domestic worker and garden assistant were held up at gunpoint and items amounting to R150 000 were stolen.
