Suspects denied bail

Three suspects that were arrested in George in the Southern Cape during Safer Festive Season mall patrols were denied bail on Friday, 21 December 2018.

Members of the police received information about four suspects, traveling in a silver Volkswagen Polo, that were involved in illegal activities in Knysna on 16 December 2018.

A team of Sector Commanders responded to the information and spotted the vehicle, with only the driver inside, leaving a shopping centre at Knysna Road. George.. They stopped the vehicle and conducted a search of the vehicle. Police found possible stolen items with an estimated value of R100 000 inside the vehicle, including jewellery, clothing and an undisclosed amount of cash.

The police confiscated these items and arrested a 24 year old woman.

Two men, unaware of the situation, later approached the vehicle where they were also arrested. Another suspect was later found hiding at a local petrol station adjacent to the shopping centre.

The four suspects, from Gugulethu in Cape Town, were positively linked to incidents of theft in Knysna.

A preliminary investigation into this matter also indicated that one of the suspects are being sought for similar incidents in Sea Point and Khayelitsha respectively. The suspects appeared in the George Magistrates court for a formal bail application where bail were denied for Nonelela Appie(24), Sanele Kumalo(22) and Siphiwe Zuma(25).

The fourth suspect, a 17 year old boy, was released into the care of his parents and the matter was postponed to 21 January 2018 for further investigation.

The Provincial Commissioner of the Western Cape police, Lieutenant General KE Jula, commended the members involved in these arrests. He also said: “ Patrols at malls and shopping centres has been stepped up to ensure maximum safety for shoppers. We also want to urge mall management as well as shop owners to be on high alert and to work closely with the police in our efforts to enhance the safety levels during the festive period.”
