On Tuesday, the team made a further arrest of another couple also involved in the same case.  The woman (39) was arrested at her residence and the husband after trying to evade police handed himself over at the Silverton police station with an entourage of attorneys.

The suspects are expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court soon.
