Fines can’t be squashed

2017-10-03 06:05

Mitchell’s Plain police have arrested a man for traffic fine fraud.

The 63-year-old man is a known fraudster who has been convicted previously for fine ­misrepresentations.

It is believed that he would approach people pretending that he was able to squash fines for an amount of cash.

He would then make off with the cash and not be heard of again.

A recent incident involved a couple who paid R2000 to a man they thought was a traffic officer. They told the police, who arrested the man. He has since appeared in court.

V Anyone with information on this is urged to call the investigating officer, detective Sergeant Sabri Adams, on 021 370 1782 or 061 606 7815.
