“This comes after they tried to defraud the bank by requesting to withdraw about R185 000 from one of the company accounts, which is based in East London. An alert bank manager noticed that the documents produced by the accused were fraudulent and contacted their fraud unit.

“The unit that verified the documents established all documents were not valid and the Kempton Park SAPS members were summoned and both suspects were arrested.

“The matter was investigated by Det/Sgt Tumelo Phaka who ensured that the accused did not get bail and face the full might of the law.”
