Johannesburg - Police are searching for a celebrity who allegedly refused to pay for petrol at a service station in Mmabatho, North West police said on Tuesday.

"The man is a well-known celebrity and stays in Gauteng," said Brigadier Thulani Ngubani.

Police could not reveal the man's identity because he had not been charged yet.

The man allegedly filled up his car at a Caltex service station in Mmabatho, but refused to pay the full amount of R690.

"He was given a chance until Monday to pay for the petrol but he did not," said Ngubani.

"We will work with Gauteng police and we expect to make an arrest soon."
