Bloemfontein - A 51-year-old Parys woman was arrested for illegal gambling activities, police said on Friday.

Warrant Officer Zweli Mohobeleli said the province’s Hawks unit started a surveillance operation of the woman’s internet café in August 2012.

Police received complaints from the Free State gambling authority, which had identified the café as operating illegally.

On Thursday, police seized 46 computers and prizes which could allegedly be won by gamblers such as fridges, plasma television screens and microwave ovens.

Cash was also recovered by police.

The woman was expected to appear in the Parys Magistrate's Court on Friday.
