On the 14th of this month while in Katutura, the pair allegedly approached a certain Raandapwa Kazapua, and tried to squeeze money out of him by pretending to be police officers.
They instilled fear into the man, with improper motives and asked him for N$1000 but he only gave them N$500.
They remained scot-free till two days later when the police caught up with and arrested them.
Los is currently out on a N$1000 bail, while Joel remains in police custody at the Wanaheda Police Station.
The two-some is expected to re-appear in court on 5th October this year.
