This came after the City's Group Forensic and Investigation Service (GFIS) department was on Thursday notified of suspected theft and damage to computers at a number of departments, including Town Planning, Municipal Courts and Group Legal and Contracts.  "The suspect gained access to the building by giving security personnel false information, including a SAP number.  Her movements were spotted on CCTV footage.  The suspect was again seen [on Friday] moving around the building, carrying a bag of tools,” the City said in a statement on Sunday.   "A search for her begun and she was caught, allegedly trying to break into the legislature offices by breaking the main door, which leads to the offices," the City added.  She was arrested by members of the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department and was scheduled to appear in the Hillbrow Magistrate's Court on Monday
