This comes after two suspects were linked to a Maydon Wharf case where a vehicle with boxes of ARVs was broken into.
The police raided premises in uMlazi and Lamontville on Tuesday, where the suspects were keeping stolen goods. A search was conducted and officers recovered stolen items including clothing, flatscreen TVs and sound systems, a PSP box and two boxes of ARV treatment.
The suspects, aged 27 and 36, appeared in the Durban Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
Department of Health spokesperson Popo Maja said the issue of ARVs being stolen was a concern for the department, but would not be drawn to say why criminals were targeting the life-saving treatment.
