A TOLLBOOTH ATTENDANT ARRESTED FOR FRAUD

MPUMALANGA – A 30-year-old suspect, Thembi Pretty Gwebu(30), employed by TRAC as a toll booth collector at Machado Toll Plaza Mpumalanga, was arrested by members of the Hawks Serious Commercial Crime Investigation Middelburg on Monday 21 December 2020 for Fraud.

It is alleged that the suspect colluded with someone who provided her with a credit card which she swiped whenever the motorist was making a cash payment for toll fees at the toll gate and pocketed the cash for herself. She did not honour the monthly payment for the credit card and the allocated credit got depleted.

The bank sent notices to the company for non-payment of the credit card which was used at the toll gate. An internal investigation was initiated and it was established that the credit card was used by the suspect and prejudiced the company more than hundreds of thousands of rands.
