ONE teenager is behind bars and another is dead – all over 50c!

It seems the two 17-year-olds from Kareedouw, near Humansdorp in Eastern Cape, had an argument about the 50c.

Darryl Prins started hitting the other boy with a knobkerrie, but the other teen stabbed Darryl in the chest. He died at the scene.

Captain Gerda Swart told Daily Sun: “A 17-year-old male suspect was arrested and held on Friday by cops following the murder of another 17-year-old.

“It happened at 3pm at Mountainview, Kareedouw. Allegedly the two argued over 50c. One assaulted the other with a knobkerrie and the other teen pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the chest.

“Darryl died at the scene.

“The suspect was held by police and appeared on Monday. He remains in custody and the case was postponed until 2 March,” she said.
