Couple arrested

A 35-year-old Odendaalsrus police officer and his 33-year-old wife, also a police officer, were arrested on Friday (05/07) after gold-bearing material and equipment used for the processing of it, were found in their home.

They appeared in the Odendaalsrus Magistrate’s Court on the same day.

The case was postponed to 16 August for further investigation and the man, a police sergeant, and his wife, a constable, were granted bail of R2 000 each.

On Thursday (04/07) officers of the Welkom K9 Unit, Crime Intelligence Unit and the Odendaalsrus police station searched the couple’s home after obtaining a search warrant.

“Possible gold-bearing material, weighing approximately 4 kg, and equipment to process gold, three large gas bottles, one hand-made stove for melting gold, two sets of burning torches, three gold weighing scales, 40 gold melting pots and a calculator were found,” Capt. Stephen Thakeng, liaison officer for the Welkom Cluster, said.
