Copper thief died of fear

A MAN arrested in possession of alleged stolen municipal electrical copper wire died in detention at the Pretoria West Police Station on Saturday.  Spokesperson Captain Dumisani Ndlazi said the man dropped dead while being interrogated.

Ndlazi said the man was arrested while he was on his way to a scrap yard to sell the stolen copper wires. When police arrested him he had shown signs of fear and could only submit his name and address before he died. – dispatch
