Notorious ‘Woolies Looter’ Pleads Guilty to Crime, Evidence Stacks Up Against Him
A man known as the ‘Woolies looter’, Mbuso Moloi (32), has pleaded guilty to theft and infringement of the National Road Traffic Regulation at Durban regional court.
According to The Witness, his guilty plea relates to the theft of items from a Woolworths branch in the Davenport area during public violence and looting in various parts of KwaZulu-Natal in July 2021.
Moloi was driving without the required license plates, violating road traffic regulations. Moloi and a friend were going around intending to purchase some items. When they arrived in Davenport, Moloi saw people leaving a Woolworths store.
He entered the store, took a plastic shopping basket, filled it with a few items, left it without paying, and put it in his vehicle before driving away.
The car, a Mercedes Benz C300 coupe, was forfeited by the Asset Forfeiture Unit of the NPA in KwaZulu-Natal and handed over to the bank as it was under a purchase agreement.
The court remanded the matter to May 31 for pre-sentencing reports, and his bail was extended in the interim.
