THE police are offering a R25 000 reward for any information leading to the arrest of Menzi Hector Mabaso, who was allegedly involved in the bombing of an ATM in the Winterton area on Thursday last week.

The police said Mabaso (26) is reportedly a career criminal wanted in connection with a number of ATM bombings in Gauteng and with three ATM bombings, a murder, hijacking and attempted murder in the Mondlo, Bergville and Winterton areas between May and December, in which about R560 000 was stolen.

He escaped from a court in Gauteng after appearing on an unlicensed firearm charge in November this year. He is believed to be in the Ladysmith area.

Police spokesperson Joey Jeevan said the suspect was considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information should call Pietermaritzburg organised crime unit detectives Detective Warrant Officer Moses Gaza at 071 481 3446 or Detective Warrant Officer Mandla Ndlovu at 071 481 2541, or Crime Stop toll-free at 08600 10111.
