Another 6 months were suspended on condition they restituted the property owner the sum of $270 each which is the cost of the property they stole.

The court was told that on May 1 this year the two went to the Media Centre Shop in Bulawayo where they broke in and stole mobile phones worth over $1640.

The theft was discovered the following day and a report made to the police led to their arrest. The property stole worth $1640 and property worth $1 100 was recovered.
