The stolen vehicle recovered during the arrest
A 48-year-old man is expected to appear in the KwaNgwanase Magistrate’s Court on Thursday for a formal bail application after he was arrested last Wednesday for possession of a stolen vehicle and attempting to bribe police officials.
Police officers deployed at Manguzi along the KZN border acted on information received of a man travelling in a suspected stolen vehicle.
