An expensive blue couch, that went viral after it was looted during the unrest in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng, has been found and returned to its owner.
"Pablo", a R70 000 blue couch, was taken when an upmarket furniture store in Springfield was looted two weeks ago.
According to a police source, the couch was recovered from an informal settlement in Quarry Road, just metres from the location of the store, reports IOL.
He said the couch was recovered at the weekend and has been partly damaged.
The San Pablo Corner Sofa made headlines after images of it placed on the pavement outside a shack in an informal settlement, with two aunties lounging on it, went viral on social media.
Mzansi detectives were hot on the case and according to reports, there were several sightings of the sofa.
The police source said no arrests have been made and contrary to social media sleuths, the larney couch has not been booked for destruction just yet.
According to the Leather Gallery website, San Pablo is a L-Sectional five-seater, full genuine leather, 35% density foam sofa.
