Police have caught up with alleged fraudster Johnny Fouche (39) with the help of the public.

Fouche is said to have defrauded a number of women whom he allegedly seduced before stealing their credit cards and cheque books.

Senior Superintendent Henry Budhram said that in response to information received by the SA Police Service commercial branch in Pietermaritzburg, members of the Sinoville police station in Pretoria visited a flat in the Annlin area on Wednesday and arrested Fouche.

He was being sought in connection with several cases of fraud allegedly committed in Pietermaritzburg and the Durban area.

Fouche is expected to appear in court in Pietermaritzburg today.
