Former policeman Dayalin Maslamoney, who allegedly squandered his R10 million Lotto jackpot winnings on fast cars, businesses, properties, alcohol and entertaining friends, has apparently been caught stealing R250.

Sunday Tribune is reporting that Maslamoney,(39) appeared in the Pietermaritzburg District Court this week with his co-accused, Zaheer Khan, for allegedly posing as a policeman.

It is alleged the suspects, dressed in civilian clothes, stormed a house in Boom Street, Pietermaritzburg, produced a name badge bearing police insignia and demanded cash from Yusuf Billy, 20, and two friends.

Police spokesman Captain Thulani Zwane said the suspects were held in custody and would appear again in court on Tuesday.

Maslamoney’s arrest has shocked family and friends.

A man who knew Maslamoney but did not want to be named said the former policeman changed when he became a multimillionaire, turning into a troubled man.
