Johannesburg - Six Coca-Cola employees were caught allegedly making a private sale of beverages at a shop in Duduza which was not on an official delivery route, says police.

"Police approached the suspects, aged between 38 and 42, and enquired about their activities. They indicated that they were attempting to sell beverages from their consignment valued at R2 000 to a local shop," said Warrant Officer Yakub Rasool.

The manager of Shanduka Beverages in Nigel confirmed to the police that the address where the beverages were being off-loaded was not on the delivery route of the truck, and the six were placed under arrest for theft.

Rasool said the manager had suspected that the employees were doing this "for a while" and had followed the delivery truck into the Duduza area.

He then approached the police who were patrolling the area and alerted them to what was going on.

The six employees will appear before the Nigel Magistrate's Court on Wednesday facing charges of theft.
