Police rescue Bulls fan

2012-06-01 09:00

Johannesburg - A devoted Bulls rugby team supporter had his rugby tickets for Saturday's Super Rugby match returned to him by police after they were stolen out of his car, according to a report on Friday.

"I couldn't believe that adjutant officer Doc le Grange, who doesn't know me from a bar of soap, had gone to so much trouble to get the tickets to me before the weekend game," Pieter Nel told Beeld newspaper.

Nel, managing director of a mining company in Midrand, had eight rugby tickets in an envelope inside his laptop case.

He left his laptop in the car last week, while he was having breakfast with a client at a Centurion, Pretoria, restaurant. He returned to find his car had been broken into, and the bag and its contents stolen.

Nel reported the incident to the Lyttelton police station, and was contacted on Tuesday by Le Grange, who told him they had recovered two stolen laptops, and an envelope with his name on it from a stolen car in Waterkloof.

Neither of the laptops belonged to Nel, but he was delighted to get his tickets back.

"One hears so many negative things about the police, that it really puts a smile on your face when something like this happens to you," he said.

  • Mandy Casey - 2012-06-01 10:16

    You gotta feel sorry for these bulls, but I am glad he got his tickets back. Now he can sing " liefling" to the pink boys on Sat.

      Tokolos - 2012-06-01 10:47

      Wazzzzuuuuuppp Mandy..... (wolf whistle!) Jy bly maar oulik jong al support jy die Stompies. Tokolos kan vir enge tyd vir JOU "liefling" serenade my ding!

      LaBlue - 2012-06-01 11:35

      Die girl se profile pic is meer fake as Tokolos s'n... Maar ek stem saam het haar.

      Dirk - 2012-06-01 11:39

      @ LaBlue - Dit is Scarlett Johansson, nie fake nie.

      Johan - 2012-06-01 17:08

      @Mandy Dokter sal bitter graag dokter-dokter met jou wil speel

  • Anton - 2012-06-01 10:27

    nogal snaaks dat die arrogansie besig is om oor te kook van al die stormer supporters se aanmerkings oor die Bulls, SIESTOG

  • Tokolos - 2012-06-01 10:27

    Dit was seker Stompie supporters wat die kar gebreek het. Hulle het geweet daar is kaartjies en wou graag Loftus toe gaan maar toe hulle al die berigte en die verskonings van die Stompies lees het hulle dit maar gelos!!! NEEEEE... Tokolos joke net! Aan beide spanne.... mag die beste span wen en met eer uit die stryd tree... wen of verloor. Go Bulle.... Go Bokke!!!

      Dirk - 2012-06-01 10:32

      Go Tokolos Go Bokke Go Stomers Go Bulls In daai orde...

      Tokolos - 2012-06-01 10:45

      Sterkte vir julle Dirk. (maar net oor Tokolos happy is vandag ok) Volgende week booooo ons die Pommies almal saam!!! Tokolos het klaar 'n bottelgooier getrain en opgeline vir die Durban toets ok. Tokolos werk nog aan die ander venues. Moenie worry nie! PS: Julle ouens daar in die Kaap moenie volgende naweek julle Kroesyder truie vergeet nie hoor!!!

  • clivegoss - 2012-06-01 10:54

    Wat was daardie testicles grappie toe die Bokke laas daar in England gespeel het? O ja Bok ondersteuners is in n helse motor ongeluk betrokke en die dokter besluit dat daar soveel skade is dat hulle hom sal moet kastreer. Toe hy bykom toe vertel hulle hom in mooi goeie Engels "That we were forced to remove your testicles" Die man raak amper mal en dit is n gekners van tande en gehuilery> Hulle verduidelik toe weer. O nee maar dit is goed ek het gedog julle se my testtickets ! !

      Anton - 2012-06-01 10:57

      Haha go Bokke

  • Trav - 2012-06-01 15:16

    Only a devoted Bulls fan will be stupid enough to leave his laptop and rugby tickets in his car. Okay, the tickets I can understand. I mean, much easier watching the game at home while your team suffers an unexpected 3rd defeat in a row. And this at home and against the depleted Stormers nogal. But hey, now we know that the thief isn't a Bulls supporter. So although he's skelm, at least he's not stupid like some people such as the likes of Rene, Tok, Blou (Pienk) who think that everyone ought to support the Bulls.

  • didi.basson - 2012-06-01 15:31

    Ek is seker hy gee nie 'n moer om vir sy laptop nie. Solank hy net sy kaartjies vir more se game terug het.

  • Johan - 2012-06-01 16:43

    Ek dink dis dom Duane Vermeulen wat dit gesteel het, hy wil graag sien hoe speel die Springbok kaptein Pierre Spies
