A NUMBER of television sets, microwaves, a computer screen, stoves, a refrigerator, a deep freeze and various other items were recovered by police during a crime intelligence-driven operation in the Malangeni area in the early morning hours of last Thursday.

Five suspects were arrested for being in possession of suspected stolen property while another four were arrested for purchasing stolen property. They appeared in the Scottburgh Magistrate’s Court last Friday.

Fanekhaya Seku (32), Nkosinathi Gumede (24), Sandile Eric Luthuli (31) and Boy-Boy Bongumusa Sukude (39), were granted bail of R500 each while Mbhekiswa Nondlanyani (34) was granted bail of R1 000 for being in possession of suspected stolen property. The case has been remanded to 19 April.

Lizzy Mzimela (51) and Bonani Mnguni (56) paid admission of guilt fines of R800 each while Nomawolishi Gqebe (54) paid an admission of guilt fine of R500. The fourth accused, charged with purchasing stolen property, Bongani Xaba (37), appeared in court.

Members of the Scottburgh Crime Intelligence, Port Shepstone Public Order Police (POP), Scottburgh SAPS and Scottburgh Cluster Detective Task Team acted on intelligence and pounced on a house in Malangeni close to the Sezela freeway off-ramp where the first five suspects were arrested for being in possession of suspected stolen property.

Investigations led police to other houses in the vicinity and four suspects were arrested for receiving stolen property.

Investigations are under way to link the stolen property to housebreaking cases.

At this stage, the first five accused have been linked to a housebreaking in Lagoon Drive, Bazley.
