Man arrested for fraud.

On Wednesday, June 22, officers from the Joburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) made an arrest of a man suspect aged 44 for the crimes of fraud and possession of a car that is believed to have been stolen.

Xolani Fihla, a spokeswoman for the Jamaican Metropolitan Police Department, said that the police were conducting a stop and search along Pritchard Street between Kruis and Von Brandis streets when a JMPD inspector stopped a gold Toyota Camry.

"The inspector requested further assistance. Officers arrived on the scene and began their inspection of the car, during which they became suspicious of the validity of the license disc. After further investigations utilizing the e-Natis system, it was revealed that the license disc for the vehicle had expired in June of 2017," Fihla added.

According to him, the license disc that was displayed on the car falsely said that the vehicle's registration would expire at the end of the month of June 2022.

"The car was taken into custody by the South African Police Service and lodged in the Aeroton pound for further investigation. The suspect is now being held at Joburg Central SAPS, and it is expected that he will make an appearance in court sometime this week," Fihla said.
