CAPE TOWN - Five men are being questioned in connection with a string of house robberies across the peninsula.

The Tanzanian nationals, aged between 30 and 45, were detained on Wednesday morning.

Detectives said they were investigating the burglaries for the past six months.

The police's November Filander said officers made a breakthrough when they seized stolen laptops destined for overseas.

"Search warrants were obtained for several premises in Tableview and Salt River. We executed [the warrants on Wednesday] morning."

Last week, officials arrested another suspect linked to the case.

He is set to apply for bail on Thursday.
