At a time when we are all being left in tears as a result of the high levels of crime, there are some individuals who are on a drive of distributing all the necessities required to promote illicit activities.

A media statement which was published by the members of the South African Police Services announced the arrest of two suspects.

Reports state that they got arrested by the Crime Intelligence team after a sting operation was carried out. The members found them wanting on allegations of supplying explosives to illegal miners.

With the support of the Bomb Disposal Unit and Ekurhuleni Metro Police a team of officers from the Gauteng Intelligence Economic Crimes managed to round up the suspects in Putfontein.

Upon their arrest, they were in possession of explosives worth approximately half a million. This operation which was carried out on the 10th of August 2022 was viewed as a major success.
