Seven men were arrested for stealing five shipping containers of electric appliances worth more than R3million at the Durban Harbour, KwaZulu-Natal police said yesterday.

Captain Thulani Zwane said fridges, stoves and microwave ovens were in the containers that went missing in August this year.

"The containers were from Korea and were to be transported to Johannesburg.

"We've been told that the suspects claimed the goods using false documents. When the real owner came, all the containers were gone," Zwane said - Sapa
