The affordable education loan option
Mangaung - A Mangaung municipal employee and his father-in-law will appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court on Friday on charges of theft and possession of stolen goods, Free State police said on Thursday.
They were caught when police investigated a complaint of huge losses of diesel at the Mangaung metro municipality, Captain Chaka Marope said.
“Police got a tip-off about a house in Turflaagte and confiscated 1470 litres of diesel valued at R20 000,” he said.
The diesel was found in seven 210 litre containers.
The municipal official allegedly delivered the stolen fuel to his father-in-law's house, from where it was sold.
