2012-07-06 00:00

TWO scrapyard owners were arrested in Isipingo near Durban after they were found to be operating illegally.

“The police found that the owners of the scrapyard do not comply with the Second-hand Goods Act, which stipulates that any person selling second-hand goods should have a registered company,” said police spokesperson Colonel Vincent Mdunge.

He said officials from the eThekwini fire department found that the premises were not suitable for business operations and posed a risk to employees. Police also discovered the roofs of cars that are suspected to have been stolen.

The suspects would appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court on charges of contravening the Second-hand Goods Act. — WR.
