Muldersdrift gangsters in court

2012-12-27 18:17

Johannesburg - Two men from a gang linked to a series of violent crimes including murder and robbery appeared in the Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on Thursday, police said.

"Their case was postponed to January 24 2013 for further investigation," said Lieutenant-Colonel Lungelo Dlamini, adding the men were remanded in custody.

He said the pair had been linked to eight incidents of crimes including murder, attempted murder, business robbery, housebreaking and theft which had taken place in Muldersdrift since July this year.

Dlamini said three other men arrested in connection with the same cases will appear in court on 31 December. "Police are in a process of holding an identity parade, which may see the suspects being linked to more serious and violent crimes in the area."

Dlamini said it was possible that more arrests would still take place.

The five men were arrested last week in two separate police operations after a stolen credit card was used to withdraw approximately R9 000 at a pub in Diepsloot.

During the arrests, police recovered a two-door Pajero hijacked in Midrand, which was believed to have been used to kidnap a man during an armed robbery. The kidnap victim was later dropped off in Midrand.

Two people were killed and three seriously injured during the gang's crime spree.

The gang is believed to be responsible for a number of house robberies, as well as a business robbery at Nulaid Eggs and another robbery at a farm, where a large number of live chickens was stolen.

    If ever we needed the death penalty... Pity that's not going to happen...

      First of all I want to say WELL DONE SAPD. Then I would like to ask Zuma if he is so against the Western Culture Why are they spending so much money on the upgrade of his Western Dwelling, Why the fancy cars and police escourts, why the fancy clothing, why the fancy watch and other jewelery I ask myself are all these nice things not from the so-called western white culture???????

      The only way the death penalty will realise is if we (the law abiding citizens of this country) take it into our own hands....South Africa is an Banana Republic and all that matters to the politians is money and power, not the well being of the common man on the street....

      hanging them would be way too easy- and a waste of good rope that can be used in more constructive ways-

    I appeal to our justice department not to ruin the good job done by the police

      Killbot79 - 2012-12-28 10:11

      Maybe you should go back to pakistan.

    Until something happens to you and your family you will feel the same Adeeb. These crimes are not out of desperation but greed. Everything is set up for Zoomers kind, but stealing and murder is much easier hey? Try watching jobs given to others that have no clue what they are doing with twice the pay...just because we all know why. Yes there is no more place for us here...i get that, just wish i can get all my wasted tax money back, that would be a lot of money...then i could make my way out of here where my kind is appreciated again...

  • eugene.muller.7 - 2012-12-27 21:26

    I think you should move back to wherever you came from Saban.
