Robbery and theft in South Africa is something we all need to find a way to fight as citizens.

A thief in Soweto was nabbed in the act of stealing. The thief got more than he bargained for after he was caught red-handed stuck in a wall he broke to steal an elderly couple.

Lindani Meshindi is a notorious thief that has been terrorising the streets of Soweto. The 26 year old burglar specializes in breaking people’s doors and wall and sneaking in to steal their property.

Lindani has been arrested after he got trapped by the wall of a building he broke to steal electronics.

The saying ‘everyday for the thief, and one day for the owner of the house’ so applied in this case that after the thief was trapped, he had to beg the owner of the house-who surprisingly discovered him trapped in the wall-for help.

The thief could not escape and was paraded to serve as lesson to others.
