A ZVISHAVANE 14-year-old boy who broke into people's houses to watch cartoons on television has been sentenced to receive six strokes of the cane.

Magistrate Peter Madiba on Tuesday convicted the Grade 7 pupil on 11 counts of theft and unlawful entry.

According to the State, between January and July, the boy, who stays in Maglas high-density suburb, broke into several houses and stole goods and cash worth over $2 000.

The State said the juvenile, who has other previous theft records, gained entry into the complainants' houses through the roof and toilet windows.

He targeted laptops, cellphones, DStv decoders and cash. The State said the boy would tune into a cartoon channel whenever he broke into a house with paid DStv subscription.
