Mitchell’s Plain are requesting the assistance of the public in a fraud case involving an alleged police officer.
It is believed that the suspect pretended to be a police officer then robbed the complainant.
“The complainant withdrew R40 000 cash at a bank in the Town Centre Mitchell's Plain. As he left the bank, he saw an undisclosed amount of money lying on the ground”.
It is alleged that an unknown suspect picked up the cash and offered to share with the complainant.
The complainant accompanied the suspect to Katdoring Street, to the monitor vehicle license testing centre, said police spokesperson Inspector IG Williams.
The driver introduced himself as a police detective, who then accused the complainant of theft of Cash and proceeded to confiscate the money he had in his possession.
“After questioning, a closed brown envelope containing paper instead of his money, was handed back to the complainant,” added Williams.
The suspects drove off in a white Golf and are still at large.
Anyone with information about the identity or whereabouts of the suspects is asked to contact Detective Sergeant D. Samson of the Mitchells Plain Fraud Unit at 021 3701706/ 079 313 9003.
