Mr Johannes Jafta, police spokesman, said the thieves tried to break into the first smallholding at about midnight.
"They smashed a window to enter the house but the owner heard the noise and began firing on the attackers. They ran off."
Jafta said some owners in Boekenhoutskloof and the police immediately gathered to patrol the area.
"In the meantime, an unknown number of men broke into another smallholding. The owner was on patrol at the time and only discovered the break-in when he arrived back home."
In a third incident at about 3:00am, four armed robbers broke into another smallholding. They found the owner and tied him with wire. "They stole various household items and escaped in the owner's Toyota Corolla."
