The suspects, aged 18-26, were arrested during a late night sting operation on Thursday.

According to police the group is believed to have embezzled just over R126 000 over a period of two weeks.

"It is believed that the suspects achieved their exploits by reproducing and misrepresenting receipts from the previous sales, which subsequently created a conflict in excess of R126 000 between the club's receipts and banked income," says police spokesperson Captain Daniel Mavimbela.

Police also called on local businesses to "intensify their theft-deterrent strategies" and regularly check their income to detect any discrepancies.
