A 33-year-old woman was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for conspiracy to commit robbery at the Benoni Magistrate’s Court on June 4.

Gladies Morakana Masiu pleaded guilty to the charge.

On August 24, 2017, Masiu and three men posed as hitchhikers on Main Reef Road.

Benoni SAPS spokesperson, Capt Nomsa Sekele said the victim, who was driving a Chevrolet bakkie, stopped and offered them a lift.

“After driving about 500m, one of the men produced a firearm and commanded the victim to drive into the veld near the Rynsoord cemetery,” said Sekele.

“The victim was forced out of his vehicle and they tied his hands and feet.”

The three men and Masiu took the victim’s money and cellphone.

The spokesperson said the Benoni sector police members, who were on patrol around the area, spotted the suspect’s vehicle, went to investigate and they found Masiu inside.

“The victim identified Masiu as one of perpetrators; she was immediately arrested and detained.”

The Ekurhuleni Central Cluster commander Major General Poobalan Subbiah applauded Detective Warrant Officer Thomas Matsane for a job well done with the investigation.

On a separate incident, a 32-year-old female was arrested by the Ekurhuleni Central Cluster tactical for perjury on June 9, at the Benoni CBD.

Sekele said the team followed up on information regarding a hijacking case in the Benoni area.

“Upon further investigation, they recovered the vehicle and also discovered that the vehicle was never hijacked but the complainant instead sold it.

The complainant was then arrested and detained at Benoni Police Station.
