Festive Season is usually characterized with extensive movement of people across the country and it is for this reason that the police in the three provinces, namely; Eastern, Northern and Western Cape, held a three day long cross border operation to address crimes that cross cut into the three provinces.
Resources such as personnel, vehicles and different types of equipment from the three provinces were put to use into this operation to help deal with these prevalent crimes affecting these provinces.
The greatest highlight of the operation was discovery of R4 000 000, 00 from a Russian National at the road block in Colesburg at about 03:30 on 29th November 2017.
The suspect was handed over to DPCI for further investigation.
Police also recovered an abandoned vehicle which was reported stolen in Gauteng and upon searching the vehicle, police discovered 29 cellphone tower batteries belonging to Vodacom and Cell C with an estimated street value of R64 000,00.
The impact brought by this highly intensified and intelligence driven operation was greatly appreciated by the three Provincial Commissioners who are tasked with protecting the citizens of this country in the Eastern, Northern and Western Cape.
ll of them applauded the zeal and enthusiasm shown by the members of the SAPS and other departments throughout the entire operation.
