Police to amp up hunt for 'fugitive' Vicki Momberg

Convicted racist Vicki Momberg is on the run after her court bid to dodge jail time failed.

Momberg was found guilty on four counts of crimen injuria and sentenced to two years behind bars after hurling racial slurs at police officers back in 2016.

A video of the incident went viral on social media at the time.

It's understood that an arrest warrant was issued in August after she failed to appeal her conviction and two-year jail term.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters says officers have looked for Momberg at the two addresses she listed, one in Bedfordview and the other in Krugersdorp.

Momberg, a former real estate agent, has not been located at either of the addresses.

Peters says police will enhance their efforts in a bid to track the woman down.

As soon as we know where she is, we will arrest her.

The warrant of arrest was issued by the courts when Ms Momberg failed to present herself.
