buglar Robbers

Two house robbers are in the running for South Africa’s dumbest crook award after they pressed the panic alarm instead of the gate remote.
According to police spokesperson Captain Jethro Mtshali, the two broke into a complex on the corner of Outeniqua and Stanley Road in Pomona, east of Johannesburg, by lifting the gate off the rail.
They stole a plasma TV and remote controls, an external hard drive and other valuables.
“The suspects then apparently pressed the panic button, thinking it to be the remote to the gate, and CMS Security responded,” added Mtshali.
The security company chased them in a white Honda up to Van Riebeeck Road. The robbers fired several shots at the officers, who were hot on their heels.
The traffic light at the intersection was red and the suspects skipped it, hitting a silver Opel Corsa.
The driver of the Corsa, Thabo Hlabane, 27, lost control and came to a halt.
Hlabane was with his uncle and seven-month-old daughter, who was immediately taken home by paramedics.
“I’m still not sure if she has sustained internal injuries. I don’t understand why this is happening to me,” said Hlabane at the scene of the accident.
“These guys are not starving, so I don’t know why they are doing this.”
The men in the Honda hit a pole which brought the car to a stop. The driver was arrested but his armed accomplice managed to get away, police said.
