GAUTENG – Two suspects aged 37 and 44 are expected to appear in the Jeppe Magistrate court on Monday and Tuesday for alleged fraud and theft of alcohol worth R6.8 million.

On Saturday members from Serious Organised Crime Investigation together with City Deep Boarder Policing members stopped two delivery trucks loaded with exclusive liquor. A document verification revealed that the documents were fraudulent and altered.

Further investigations also exposed that both trucks registration numbers were false and were immediately impounded. One of the suspects was apprehended when they tried to flee the scene and the other managed to flee.

The super sleuth members did not rest and managed to trace and arrest the second suspect in Alberton on Sunday afternoon.  Investigations are still continuing.
