Susanna Degenaar(40) and Nikolaaas Gouws(30) are expected to appear in Mmabatho Regional Court on 25 May 2015 for possession of suspected stolen goods (cars). The accused were arrested over the Easter weekend by Vryburg K9 Unit in a village in Louwna, outside Vryburg. This was after the members got information about selling of suspected stolen cars in Louwna.
They went to the village where they found three vehicles, and circulated one of them. It was found that the car was reported hijacked in Gauteng. The other two cars were also circulated and it was discovered that they were hijacked in Pretoria towards the end of March, and that in one incident, the owner was killed. The members continued with their investigation and it led them to the recovery of six more vehicles in Ganyesa, Coetzerssdam and Morokweng.
The accused have already appeared in court twice. In the first appearance on 7 April 2015 Susanna was granted R2500,00 bail while Nikolaas Gouws was granted R2000,00 bail yesterday when they appeared again.
