Two help themselves to diesel
Fuel thieves

Vigilant police officials from Ventersburg arrested two men who were using an electrical pump to allegedly steal diesel from the local cooperative.

Const. Botaiki Lebatla and Const. Tsheliso Lepitla were patrolling in Church Street when they came across a suspicious bakkie with GP registration plates.

There were two JoJo tanks on the back of the vehicle, and another one on a trailer.

“When the police members approached and enquired what they were doing, they said they were selling diesel,” says Capt. Malebo Khosana, Thabong communications officer.

“The suspects jumped into the bakkie and drove off at high speed in the direction of Hennenman.

“The two police officials gave chase. When they reached the entrance of Phomolong, the suspects fired shots at the police officers.

“The policemen returned fire. No one was injured,” he said.

The suspects were arrested and the bakkie, trailer, three tanks, machinery and pipes were confiscated.

The two suspects, Thato Pinkoana (26) and Dire Motsumi (24), appeared in the Ventersburg Magistrates’ Court on Thursday (22/11).

They remain in custody until their next court appearance on Thursday, 27 December.
