Ex-PSL guard arrested

2009-09-18 16:03
Johannesburg - A former Premier Soccer League (PSL) security guard was arrested on Friday in connection with an armed robbery in which R200 000 worth of equipment was stolen from the PSL's offices in Parktown in January, police said.

The 30-year-old guard was arrested at 04:00 on Friday by police acting on information, Captain Bhekizizwe Mavundla said.

A guard on duty outside the PSL on the night of January 28 was called to the gate by three men in a Volkswagen Golf at 22:00. They told him they wanted to drop off a reflector jacket.

Instead, they produced firearms, tied him up with shoelaces and proceeded to take nine plasma television sets, a computer, cellphones, remote controls, and an access card.

Mavundla said the man would appear in the Johannesburg Magistrates' Court on Monday on a charge of robbery.

He said the arrest was among 64 made between Thursday and Friday in crime prevention operations and by detectives tracing wanted criminals in the Hillbrow policing precinct.
