Police speak on Musona’s arrest after his car used in an armed robbery.
Zimbabwean International soccer player Walter Musona was briefly detained by the South African Police Service (SAPS) after his BMW sedan was used during what has been termed as a daring armed robbery on Friday.
The Police in Apel near Lebowakgomo outside Polokwane have launched a massive manhunt for a group of armed suspects involved in a business robbery which occurred in the early hours of yesterday, 2019-05-10 at about 01:00, at one of the local guest houses in the Mohlaletse area.
However, SAPS have since confirmed that Musona was not in the car at the time of the robbery and released a statement to that effect. We publish the full statement from Col Moatshe Ngoepe of the South African Police Service, Office of the Provincial Commissioner Limpopo below.
It is alleged that a group of suspects attacked the employees at this overnight accommodation, shot one of them and ransacked the building. The suspects thereafter, uninstalled the Plasma TVs on the walls, loaded them inside their vehicle and stole several other electrical appliances before they fled the scene with a BMW sedan, white in colour.
The police were summoned and reacted swiftly. The suspects’ car was immediately followed by the police and a car chase ensued until the culprits lost control of their vehicle and knocked a tree alongside the road. The suspects managed to flee on foot.
The police searched the car and a number of items believed to be the ones robbed during this incident, were recovered, which include more than ten Plasma television sets, cell phones, TV remote controls, laptops and other items.
The recovered motor vehicle used by these suspects was positively identified. It is belonging to one of the national soccer players. The player is not arrested yet pending further police investigations. Preliminary police investigations revealed that he was not in the car during this incident but he is cooperating with the police to track down the suspects on which one is already identified.
The suspects involved in this matter including the driver of the motor vehicle are still on the run. The police are calling upon Bothwell Maligasi, to visit Apel police Station or the nearest police station to assist in the investigations in this matter.
Anyone with information that can lead to the apprehension of the suspects is requested to contact Colonel Moyahabo Morudi at 082 565 7646 or Crime Stop at 08600 10111 or Crime Line SMS 32211 or the nearest police station.
