Theft robbery

IN SH0CK|| Trio arrested after they were found with this

Three people were arrested this morning in Belfast for theft and possession of stolen diesel.

At approximately 00:30 in the early hours of the morning , Belfast SAPS and Polsec which are security companies patrolled the area around Railway Station Street in Belfast. They then observed a truck and a bowser parked on the side of the road and proceeded to investigate what was going on.

That's when they discovered that the two drivers of the trucks and the bowser were draining diesel from the vehicles and bowsers into the trailer's tanks.

Further investigation revealed that the truck and bowser were not meant to be in Belfast, according to the owners.

The three suspects, who are 22 years old, 31 years old, and 44 years old, were arrested right away for possession of stolen property and will appear in Belfast Magistrates' Court on Monday, January 24, 2022.

2100 litres of diesel were recovered by SAPS.

Lieutenant General Semakaleng Daphney Manamela, the Provincial Commissioner of the SAPS in Mpumalanga, praised the members and security companies for their vigilance and commitment in battling crime.

The theft of diesel is starting to become a common occurrence in South Africa. This might be influenced by the constant price hikes of petrol and diesel.
