King Williams Town - Over the weekend, King William's Town Cluster Detectives traced and arrested suspects, who were wanted for fraud cases that happened within the King William's Town SAPS Cluster.

"Detectives arrested a 40-year-old man from KZN for fraud," sad police spokesperson, Captain Siphokazi Mawisa.

"They then proceeded to Gauteng where they managed to arrest three suspects, aged between 26 and 40 years, for fraud."

She said that the cases were opened at Stutterheim and King Williams Town in 2018 and 2019 where victims were allegedly robbed of money through false marketing and were urged to deposit money.

Brigadier Luntu Ngubelanga said this sends a strong message to perpetrators that police will not rest till the suspects are behind bars and will trace all suspects even if they fled to other provinces.

He commended the members for the job well done in ensuring that these suspects are arrested.

All these suspects will appear at Stutterheim and King Williams Town Magistrate's Court on Monday.
