Well-known security operator, acquitted on housebreaking and theft charges

A well-known personality in Walvis Bay’s private security industry, Mr. Nickey van Zyl (46) was acquitted on a case of housebreaking with the intent to steal and a second charge of theft on Wednesday.

Van Zyl was arrested on 22 December 2018 as the only suspect in a burglary at the branch of Ackermans at the Metropolitan Plaza in Walvis Bay’s central business district. The burglary took place some time during the night of 21/22 December. Cash to the value of N$58 000 was stolen during the burglary.
A local magistrate ruled on Wednesday there was inconclusive evidence to convict van Zyl. Close circuit television footage was also unclear and the burglar could not be identified from this footage.
The stolen cash was never recovered.
