Suspected car thief could face more charges…
Rustenburg – A 32-year-old man who appeared before the Rustenburg Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 9 September, for the possession of suspected stolen motor vehicles and other serious charges, is likely to find himself in even more trouble.
Tumisang Gama, who was also charged with the illegal possession of a firearm as well as illegal possession of ammunition during the appearance, abandoned his bail application. It is alleged that Gama was among the group of people who illegally occupied houses situated in the Rustenburg North area in May 2020. “He could face more charges but, for now, the allegations are the subject of an investigation,” police spokesperson captain Elsabé Augoustides said.
Gama has also been fingered in other criminal cases. Police have revealed that he has a pending hijacking case against him which was committed in Rustenburg in December last year. In 2018, he was arrested after police received information that he had two vehicles - with what looked like bullet holes - in his possession.
During his latest arrest on Monday 7 September 2020, a veterinarian had to be summoned to the scene to assist in sedating a vicious dog which attacked and bit one of the police officers.
