Magistrate Rennier Boshoff sentenced Lesigo Masiame (21) on 15 November for the incident which occurred on 10 June. He broke into his friend’s house in his absence and stole a phone, sunglasses, jackets, shirts, and a wallet with Capitec Bank and other cards. He then went to the bank and asked to increase the withdrawal limit but was arrested when the biometric fingerprint testing didn’t match.
