Luck finally runs out for Uitenhage fugitive after three months on the run

Uitenhage police this week nabbed a suspect, who had spent three months on the run. As a result, Goodman Klaas (21), appeared in the Uitenhage Magistrate's Court on Thursday after he failed to appear on two occasions.

"Police nabbed Klaas after an information of his whereabouts was received in Market Street, Uitenhage on Wednesday," described police spokesperson, Sgt Majola Nkohli.

"A man has been on the run since September last year.

"It is alleged that on June 26 last year, he broke into a house in Peligan Street, Kamesh, Uitenhage and stole groceries, clothes and electrical appliances.

"A man was not granted bail and told to remain in custody until his bail hearing on January 16."
