Butch­ery rob­ber gets the chop

Zululand Observer - Monday - - ZO NEWS -

LAST Mon­day a man was sen­tenced to 15 years im­pris­on­ment for an armed rob­bery at KC Meats in July 2017. The eShowe Re­gional Court heard how Nkosi­nathi Mhuqu Cele (34) de­manded the em­ploy­ees, who had just cashed up the day’s tak­ings and locked the butch­ery, hand over the bag of money be­fore run­ning into the bush. A case of armed rob­bery was opened at the eShowe SAPS and the docket was al­lo­cated to D/Sgt Wynne. In Oc­to­ber he re­ceived in­for­ma­tion from an in­former about the where­abouts of the sus­pect. The sus­pect was ar­rested at Nkanini out­side eShowe and was iden­ti­fied by both vic­tims dur­ing an iden­ti­fi­ca­tion pa­rade. The court re­ceived a well in­ves­ti­gated docket re­sult­ing in the con­vic­tion and sen­tenc­ing.
