PIETERMARITZBURG police are looking for a man who disappeared after pulling off a brazen car theft.

Captain Thulani Zwane said that a man pretending to be a financial manager approached a car dealership in Pietermaritz Street, and produced financial documents and an identity document, saying his name was Gugulethu Dannyboy Mnguni, and bought a Silver Toyota Fortuner to the value of R403 310.

While processing the sale, the dealer realised that the particulars on the documents were false and he contacted the police. The man has not been traced. He is believed to be from the Johannesburg area.

Police are appealing to anyone who can assist with information regarding the whereabouts of the man to contact the investigating officer Detective Warrant Officer Clive van Wyk at 033 845 2753 or 076 622 6274, or Lieutenant-Colonel Naresh Nandhlal at 079 696 3712.

Members of the public may also contact Crime Stop at 086 001 0111.
