Man wanted in fraud incident

2014-03-05 00:00

POLICE are searching for 22-year-old Sizwe Felix Goba, who is wanted in connection with a fraud incident in Pietermaritzburg in June 2013.

Police said in December 2013, Goba was released on bail of R1 000 by the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court and in February he failed to comply with his bail conditions and did not appear in court. A warrant for his arrest was then issued.

Police said Goba had allegedly bought alcohol worth approximately R5 000 at a shopping centre in Church Street and produced a credit card to pay. Upon checking the transaction, the alert cashier noticed that the number on the card did not match the number on the slip. He informed his manager who contacted the police. Goba was subsequently arrested. Goba is believed to be from Pinetown near Durban.

Police have appealed to anyone with any information about Goba’s where­abouts to urgently contact Detective Warrant Officer Clive van Wyk on 033 845 2753 or 076 622 6274, or Lieutenant Colonel Naresh Nandhlal on 079 696 3712 or Crime Stop on 086 001 0111.
