Nabbed for diamond possession

Two suspects appeared in the Somerset West Magistrate’s Court last Friday (23 November) after their arrest for illegal possession of unpolished diamonds worth an estimated R400 000.

The suspects, a 53-year-old man from Bethlehem in the Free State and a 36-year-old man from Mitchell’s Plain, were nabbed after local police followed up on a tip-off last Tuesday (20 November).

According to Sergeant Suzan Jantjies, spokesperson for Somerset West police, officers followed-up on information received on an alleged “diamond deal” that was to take place at a pub in Somerset West.

A media statement released by provincial police last Wednesday stated that, on arrival, police found two men in possession of uncut diamonds. “The men could not provide proof of ownership and were arrested for possession of unpolished diamonds,” it read. “The estimated street value of the stones is R400 000. The circumstances surrounding the stones and their authenticity are under investigation.”

The suspects remain in custody until their next court appearance for a formal bail application on Friday 30 November.
