Three suspects, aged between 24 and 39 years old were arrested after being found in possession of suspected fraudulent SASSA cards which they were using to withdraw money. They were spotted by an off-duty constable on Tuesday, 03 January 2023.

Kwa Zulu Natal spokesperson Colonel Robert Netshiunda said the vigilant officer was at the Mangrove Centre in North Beach, Durban when she spotted three suspicious-looking women who were withdrawing money at the ATM. “The young officer requested back-up from the Metro Police officers who were in the vicinity and tactically approached the suspects”.

Netshiunda added that the suspects were also found in possession of over R60 000 in cash, 32 SASSA cards, 22 bank cards from various banking institutions as well as four cell phones. They will appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court soon.
