WP Athletics man arrested

Provincial police last week confirmed that Allen Barnes, finance officer at Western Province Athletics (WP Athletics), had been arrested.

Barnes went missing after leaving his Bothasig home on Saturday 4 January. He was on his way to a sporting event in Strandfontein, but never arrived. The police later confirmed that they had discovered his vehicle at Cape Town International Airport. It was also reported that he had visited the GrandWest Casino in Goodwood.

Jakes Jacobs, president of WP Athletics, said in a statement on 8 January, that the board had found irregularities since Barnes’ disappearance and is conducting a full investigation into the matter. TygerBurger is still waiting on a response as to what the irregularities are.

“As soon as I have confirmed information that I am allowed by the police to reveal, I will answer your questions. Currently I cannot disclose any additional information,” Jacobs said in his last response to the newspaper.

Col André Traut, Western Cape police spokesperson, on Friday said a fraud case had been reported to Sea Point police.

“The suspect in the matter, 53-year-old Allen Barnes, was arrested on 10 January in Gauteng where he also made a brief court appearance on Monday 13 January. “He is scheduled to make his second court appearance in Cape Town,” Traut says.

Barnes was reported missing at the Bothasig police station, but this file has since been closed, Traut says.
