Stolen bananas recovered

2016-06-30 06:00

LAST Tuesday at around 8.50pm Port Edward police were patrolling at Munster and saw a white Isuzu bakkie with a canopy at a stop street.

They noticed there was a bunch of bananas covered in blue plastic on the back. They became suspicious and stopped it at R16 near Port Edward.

They asked the driver where he was going with the bananas and where he got them from.

The suspects told them they bought the bananas­ from one of the farmers, but could not give the name of the farm and failed to show the receipt as proof of purchase. The police officers then arrested the suspects.

Police spokesperson Captain Gerald Mfeka said three suspects, Nkosinathi Ncwadi (43), Likho Ganyaza (19) and the third suspect, a juvenile­, appeared at Ramsgate Court last Wednesday.

Mfeka said all three were granted bail of R500 each and the juvenile was released under the parents protection.

“The case has been remanded to 6 July at Ramsgate Court,” said Mfeka. - Supplied.
