Burglar with a screwdriver

Two members of staff at the Agrotechnology & Food Sciences Group (AFSG) caught an intruder last week and handed him over to the police.

The 61-year-old man was breaking into a chest of drawers with a screwdriver. ‘Our staff acted bravely,’ says facility manager Bart Sjoers of the AFSG. ‘Even though the thief threatened them with the screwdriver, they managed to corner him and seize him.’ He had previously stolen two smartphones in January.
