Petty thief confesses to stealing alcohol

CHARGED: Malefomantsho

A 24-year-old youth arrested for bar breaking and theft at Thamaga village has confessed to the crime during his arraignment this week before a Molepolole Magistrates Court.

The accused, Moshe Malefomontsho, and two others not before court, are said to have on January 2nd, 2020 at Kgosing Bosija ward, Thamaga broken into Night Star Bar and stole an assortment of alcoholic beverages that included Savanna, Amstel, Klipdrift and Gordons all valued at P5 441.00.

Malefomontsho and his partners in crime are said to have broken into the bar through a window and stole the alcohol.

The court also heard that none of the stolen goods were recovered and that the two other suspects were still at large.

State prosecutor, Sergeant Modise Masala, made an application to have the plea on the matter reserved pending the arrest of the missing suspects, but Magistrate Kefilwe Resheng shot it down and ruled that Malefomontsho be charged separately.

She suggested that the charges could be consolidated after the arrest of the other suspects.

The remorseful Malefomontsho who immediately pleaded guilty and admitted to have committed the crime was granted a P2 500 conditional bail.

The matter was postponed for facts presentation to be heard next week Tuesday (January 21st, 2020).
