BUSHBUCKRIDGE - Norman Sylvester Mokoena (23), also known as "Dallas", was arrested by the Mpumalanga Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation, Tactical Response Team and Crime Intelligence on Saturday August 29 in Bushbuckridge.

Mokoena was circulated as most wanted in July for evading lawful custody after he had escaped from the Calcutta Magistrate’s Court’s holding cells. He had been denied bail for a series of armed robbery cases he had committed in Marite in which he had targeted delivery trucks.

Upon his arrest, the accused was found in possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition. 

Mokoena appeared before the Mhala Magistrate’s Court on Monday.  The case was postponed to September 3.
