Police arrested 2 men with more than 300 kg of Transnet copper cable

Police said the vehicle was stopped and searched, resulting in a 302kg copper cable identified by a Transnet employee as the property of the transport company.

Two men were arrested in Vredenburg after they were found to have found 302 kilograms of copper cable owned by Transnet, Western Cape police said.

Colonel Andrè Traut, a police spokesman, said the two men had been apprehended by police patrolling Saturday night at crossings R27 and R399 in Vredenburg.

“Members were on patrol around 6:45 p.m. when a heavy-duty Toyota Corolla caught their attention.

“The vehicle was stopped and inspected, which resulted in the discovery of 302kg of copper cable, which was identified by a Transnet employee as owned by the transport company, valued at around RUB 91,000,” Traut said.

The 43- and 46-year-olds appeared before the Vredenburg board court on Monday, accusing them of possessing stolen property.
