One of Durban’s most wanted criminal arrested

A man who was on the police’s wanted list for most of this year has finally been nabbed.

The man, who was wanted for a string of crimes including housebreaking and theft, was arrested after a tip off.

Verulam SAPS communications officer, Warrant Officer Mark Prakasim said Leon Naidoo, 30, was tracked to a shelter in Durban.

“A team was gathered, went to the shelter, staked out the place for about three hours and arrested the suspect when he arrived,” he said.

Naidoo is currently being held at the Westville Prison.

Prakasim said Naidoo allegedly stole R100 000 worth of jewellery and three firearms earlier this year.

He said Naidoo had also been linked to similar crimes in Durban North, Verulam, Tongaat and Stanger. He added that Naidoo had been previously convicted for robbery, housebreaking and possession of heroin.
