A 32-year-old former Post Office worker has been arrested in Bloemfontein for allegedly pocketing customers’ deposits, the Hawks said.

He was arrested yesterday at his home in Grassland Phase 3 after police were tipped off by the Bloemfontein Post Office about alleged fraud, Free State Hawks spokesperson Sergeant Mmako Mophiring said.

The man, who worked for the Post Office in January last year, allegedly entered amounts of money totalling R58 421 into a ledger, and allegedly claimed he had deposited the money.

He was expected to appear in Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on November 18 on charges of fraud and theft.
