Durban’s ‘most wanted’ gets bail

2014-01-09 00:00

THE man believed to be one of Durban’s most wanted criminals was granted bail yesterday.

Jerome Chetty (36) is accused of house robbery and burglary and is believed to have conned a Durban family out of more than R600 000 on the promise of being a loan consultant.

He will reappear before the Durban Magistrate’s Court on January 23.

Chetty is believed to be part of a wider syndicate operating in Durban.

In the most recent incident linked to him, his car has been identified as being used in a armed robbery in Mayville in December where three suspects held up a married couple and stole electronics, jewellery and the home owner’s BMW.

He is also believed to have been scamming people as a fake loan specialist, with “clients” allegedly expected to pay over deposits into “trust accounts”. They victims then never receive the promised loans.
