ON 11 May at 3pm, members of Crime Intelligence and Amanzimtoti Crime Prevention received information with regards to the selling of illegal cigarettes at a shop in Doonside.

“The information was followed up and an arrest was effected and the cigarettes confiscated,” said Captain Charlene van der Spuy.

“On further inspection it was discovered that the cigarettes are not from South Africa and do not have the SA Diamond stamp, which means they are illegal. The suspected dealer was charged with the offence in terms of the Customs Excise Act on Illegal Cigarettes and is to appear in Amanzimtoti Court on 12 May,” Van Der Spuy said. - Supplied
