Johannesburg - A 33-year-old scrap yard dealer from Wynberg was arrested on Tuesday after he was found in possession of a manhole cover and a streetlight pole, Johannesburg metro police said.

Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said the manhole cover and streetlight pole belonged to the City of Johannesburg.

“The man will appear in court on Wednesday for possession of stolen property and for bribery,” he said.

“The man tried to give officers a R1000 bribe but the officers refused.”

Minnaar said the man would appear in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
