Two suspects were arrested after they were found in possession of suspected stolen cricket equipment.

Provincial police spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk said police found two suspicious men pushing a trolley on Tuesday at about 10:15.

“Grassy Park police members were doing patrols in Italian Road when they noticed two suspicious looking men pushing a trolley with a black bag. When stopping them, members searched the bag and found cricket equipment to the value of R25 000,” Van Wyk confirms.

“The two men could not give a reasonable explanation as to where they obtained the equipment and they informed police that they were about to go and sell it at a second-hand dealer shop,” Van Wyk says.

Both suspects were arrested on charges of alleged possession of stolen goods.
