A 36-YEAR-OLD man was arrested by Kokstad police and charged with possession of suspected stolen property last Sunday.

It is alleged that the man was caught while selling four new tyres and a car jack to a police officer in Kokstad.

“The suspect was unaware that he was selling the items to a policeman and he was arrested at the scene,” said SAPS spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ncongo.

The suspect appeared in Kokstad Magistrate’s Court on Monday and the case was remanded to February 5 for bail application. He remains in custody.
