Computers containing potentially sensitive information were stolen during a burglary at the Pretoria headquarters of the Hawks on Wednesday morning.
The robbery occurred in the support environment of the building where the human resources and finance departments are located.
It is still unclear how many computers were taken or if anything else was taken from other sectors of the offices.
Investigators are still searching for a motive, however, an assessment of the damages will be carried out before any speculation is made or leads are followed.
The burglary come a few months after much the same occurred at the offices of the Chief Justice and sensitive information was taken then.
The computer’s taken could contain confidential information.
