KWAZULU-NATAL – In the early hours of 23 May 2021, the Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation team arrested a suspect for the alleged theft of millions. He is expected to appear at the Durban Magistrates’ Court this morning, 24 May 2021.
It is alleged that in December 2019, the suspect who was an employee at G4S stole R2,4 million from the G4S Cash Solutions depot in Westville. A case was opened which prompted the Hawks’ investigation. A warrant for his arrest was issued by court after a thorough probe.
He was arrested today with the assistance of Crime Intelligence members after he had been on the run. The suspect is alleged to have built a house from the suspected stolen million and therefor the Asset Forfeiture Unit will assist with further investigation. The investigation is continuing.
