A Zimbabwean national has been arrested after he was found with dozens of mobile phones in his possession.
The discovery was made by Eye Operation in Joburg after a lady who was robbed of her iPhone in Soweto tracked it to a building in Johannesburg.
Sharing a video of the shocking discovery, the Eye Operation team member showed off countless iPhones that were on the bed alongside foreign currency notes and a young man who was identified as a Zimbabwean national.
Speaking in the background the team member said: “This is a building called High Rise at corner Von Brandis and Rahima Moosa. We found this Zimbabwean here, they are the ones who are robbing our parents, kids, brothers and sisters… if you’re looking for your iPhone, we are going to these phones at John Foster Police Station.”
