Cape Town - Former Hard Livings gangster Rashied Staggie and three others are expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Monday for allegedly being in possession of stolen cigars and whiskey.

The Hawks said they arrested the three men near Cape Town's canal walk on Thursday while they were driving in a convoy.

Police would only say that one of the men was a "well-known former inmate and gang leader in the Cape Flats", who was out on parole.

A well-placed source confirmed that Staggie was among those apprehended.

Staggie, former leader of the Hard Livings gang, was granted parole in 2014 after serving 13 years behind bars for a burglary at the Faure police armoury.

His brother Rashaad, who also held a top rank in the gang, was shot and set alight in 1996 in Salt River.

Last Thursday's haul is believed to have come from a container depot in Cleveland, Johannesburg.
