A 69-year-old man has been arrested for stealing a wig from a shop in the city centre.
Nene Banda (69) pounced at the shop which is situated at corner Sixth Avenue and Joshua Mqabuko Street and pretended as if he wanted to buy a bed. While the shop assistant was busy assisting other customers he stole a wig.
It is said in the evening the shopkeeper noticed that a wig was missing and informed their superior and on checking their CCTV footage they saw Banda stealing it.
He was caught when he returned to pounce for the second time.
Banda appeared before Tredgold magistrate Amanda Ndlovu facing a theft charge and pleaded guilty.
He was remanded out of custody to next week on Monday.
