Durban – A 38-year-old man is appearing in KwaNgwanase Magistrates Court today for being in possession of suspected stolen truck.
On Monday afternoon, Emanguzi police prevented the stolen truck from crossing the border to Mozambique.
Investigations revealed that the truck was stolen from Mpumalanga province.
Whilst detaining the suspect, a 35-year-old male approached the police officers and offered them R10,000-00 to release the suspect. He was immediately arrested and charged for bribery.
Further police investigations revealed that the 38-year-old suspect is out on bail. He was arrested two months ago after he attempted to cross the border with another truck that was stolen from Pretoria.
He will be re-appearing at the Empangeni Magistrates Court on 30 August 2019 on that case.
