POLICE Constable Nelisha Mahaica, who stole her workmate’s bank card and withdrew $500,000 from the account, was on Friday sentenced to eight months imprisonment.
The policewoman, who was stationed at the Mahaica Police Station, appeared before Magistrate Alicia George at the Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court and confessed to four counts of simple larceny, which alleged that between June 30 and July 6, 2021, she stole the cash from her colleague’s Republic Bank account.
Mahaica was sentenced to eight months imprisonment on each count. However, the magistrate ordered that the sentences run concurrently.
According to reports, Mahaica stole the victim’s bank card, and hacked into the account. She managed to secure the victim’s pin number, and subsequently went to the bank and withdrew the money from the ATM machine on various occasions.
Video footage from the bank showed Mahaica taking the money. She was later arrested, and, under caution, admitted to the crime.
