More than 200F of liquor has been confiscated during a joint operation.

On Tuesday 18 August Mitchell’s Plain police station’s Designated Liquor Officers excecuted a joint operation with Law Enforcement in Tafelsig after receiving information that liquor was being sold without a valid licence.

Officers visited a 9th Avenue house in Silver City, says police spokesperson Sergeant Jerome Voegt.

“Upon the members arrival at the scene they discovered 282,57F of liquor hidden inside the premises. The suspect – a 60-year-old man – was arrested,” he says.

The man has since appeared in court.

In an unrelated incident the Mitchell’s Plain Tactical Response Team arrested a 26-year-old for possession of drugs in Eastridge.

The man was found with a large qauntity of mandrax with a street value of R7 750.

“On Wednesday at 13:45 the memebers were doing a routine vehicle patrol in Zebra Street when they spotted a suspiciuos looking man in the street.

“When the suspect noticed the officers approaching, he ran down the street. Officers gave chase on foot and caught the man,” says Voegt.

Officers confiscated 155 mandrax tablets inside a plastic bag
