Three suspects between the ages of 16 and 26 will appear before the Durban Magistrates Court on Monday. This is after the Economic Infrastructure Task Team (EITT) acted swiftly on Saturday, 18 June 2022 after receiving intelligence about cable theft on a railway track at Mobeni near SJ Smith Hostel.

Constable Thenjiswa Ngcobo KwaZulu-Natal Police said the EITT members followed up on the information and it led them to Swinton Road where they found three men in possession of fifty-one metres of copper cables, eight bundles of copper cables and seven metres of aluminium cable.

Ngcobo added that the three were detained at Montclair.
