JOHANNESBURG - Two people arrested for cable theft worth R100,000 are expected to appear in the Wynberg Magistrates Court on Monday morning.

The City of Johannesburg’s group forensic and investigation service made the arrest after acting on a tip-off.

The arrests were a result of a joint effort by the forensic team and the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department.

“It is a major breakthrough for us as the City of Johannesburg because in the past we have been experiencing quite a number of people stealing copper cables,” said the city’s Lucky Sindane.
