An intelligence driven operation by the Hawks’ Priority Violent Crimes (PVC) unit assisted by the Gauteng Technical Response Team led to the arrest of Welcome Marcus (50), and Charles Anthony Scheepers (54), in Edenvale and Fleurhof near Johannesburg on Sunday, 13 May 2018, after investigations linked them to a Klerksdorp Nedbank branch incident where approximately R3million was stolen when two suspects posed as SBV security officers on routine cash pickup.

The suspects appeared at the Klerksdorp magistrate court on 15 May 2018 facing a charge of theft. The case was postponed to 22 May 2018 for bail application. Meanwhile the net is closing in on additional suspects who allegedly worked in cahoots with the duo.

The Provincial Head of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation in the North West Province, Major General Linda Mbana welcomed the arrest and warned that no stone will be left unturned in the ongoing investigation to ensure that all who played a part in this crime are apprehended and brought to book.
