AU­THOR­I­TIES are ques­tion­ing a 20-year-old man from Walmer town­ship af­ter re­ceiv­ing a tip-off that he was seen car­ry­ing a com­puter thought to have been stolen dur­ing a house rob­bery in Green­shields Park that left Shaun Mould, 44, dead.

Yes­ter­day, de­tec­tives con­firmed they were ques­tion­ing a man pos­si­bly linked to the rob- bery, but main­tained that they were still ex­plor­ing all leads.

Po­lice spokes­woman Cap­tain San­dra Janse van Rens­burg said yes­ter­day that the man was taken in for ques­tion­ing and had not yet been charged.

“He is be­ing ques­tioned af­ter a tip-off that he was in pos­ses­sion of some of the stolen equip­ment. Af­ter the in­for­ma­tion was re­ceived, de­tec­tives ar­rested him,” she said. “They searched his house and known hang­outs but none of the stolen items have been re­cov­ered.”

Janse van Rens­burg said that af­ter an in­ter­ro­ga­tion, a de­ci­sion would be taken on whether or not to charge the man.

This comes only a day af­ter po­lice of­fered a sub­stan­tial re­ward for any in­for­ma­tion lead­ing to the ar­rest and con­vic­tion of any of the four rob­bers in­volved in the murder.

Mould was shot dead dur­ing a rob­bery at his Saun­ton Road home at about 4am on Sun­day. His body was found eight hours later by his 18-year-old nephew, Jac­ques. The house had been ran­sacked and items stolen.
