Johannesburg - Twenty-two people were arrested and R15m worth of counterfeit goods confiscated during roadblocks and raids in Gauteng over the weekend.

Two stolen vehicles, a motorbike, a rifle with three boxes of ammunition, and drugs were also confiscated, police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said on Monday.

Traffic fines totalling R260 000 were issued over the weekend.

The roadblocks were held on all major highways including N1-Grasmere/Carousel toll gates, N3, N14 and R59.

Raids were conducted in the Johannesburg city centre, near Park Station, where most of the counterfeit goods and DVDs were seized.

"These goods were intended to be sold to people boarding taxis and going on holidays to various destinations."

Eight people were arrested for possession of drugs, six for illegal immigration, four for drinking in public, two for driving without licences and two for fraud and possession of a stolen motorbike.
