Two arrested for 'siphoning diesel' from Transnet pipeline

Two suspects will appear in court on Monday after being arrested for allegedly stealing diesel from a Transnet pipeline in Delmas, Mpumalanga.

The two were arrested after Transnet security guards spotted a diesel tanker with eight people next to it on Friday.

Mpumalanga Hawks spokesperson Capt Dineo Sekgotodi said the suspects ran in different directions but guards managed to arrest two suspects, including the driver.

“The suspects aged between 21 and 28 are expected to appear before the Delmas magistrate's court on Monday for theft of diesel and malicious damage to property. Investigations are still ongoing and further arrests cannot be ruled out.
