Captain Jethro Mtshali said the coffee shop in the Festival Mall, east of Johannesburg, was burgled on Sunday night. Security camera footage showed the staffer entering the shop with a spare key and breaking open the safe with a bolt cutter.

About R14600 was found in his flat. He will appear in the Kempton Park magistrate's court today. - Sapa
