He continued that the suspect was arrested and detained and appeared in court on 1 October.
In another success, Moodley said a suspect was sentenced to nine years direct imprisonment for a house robbery case which occurred in Morningside in February this year.
The suspect Nndwakhulu Castro Ramalivhana pleaded guilty and was sentenced in the Alexandra Regional Court. “He had no option but to plead guilty since Detective Constable Sigidi built an airtight case which would have resulted in a guilty finding had the suspect pleaded not guilty,” said Moodley.
