Lenasia CPF member arrested, cash seized

South Africa

Johannesburg – The police have arrested a Community Police Forum member and his son-in-law in Lenasia, south of Johannesburg.

It’s understood that a large sum of cash, allegedly ransom money from kidnappings, has been seized.

The son-in-law is allegedly part of a syndicate led by suspected kingpin Faizal Charloos, arrested ten days ago.

He and his co-accused face charges of kidnapping and illegal arms possession.

Police seized eight vehicles, including one fitted with blue lights.

Charloos appeared in a Soweto court on Monday, and the bail hearing was moved to next Tuesday.

A total of nine suspects are now behind bars, and more arrests are expected.
