During the search the officers found 40F alcohol inside the house.

The officers also confiscated 25 crates of beer and 268 empty bottles.

A 57-year-old man was arrested for selling alcohol without a valid licence.

Later the same day, at about 16:30, police arrested a 32-year-old man in Cypress Street, Westridge after receiving information that he was trading without valid registration to sell second-hand goods.

The officers searched the premises and discovered that he did not comply with the Second Hand Goods Act and that he did not possess a valid licence.

A total of 138 second-hand tyres were confiscated.

A case of dealing in second-hand goods without valid registration was opened for investigation.

Illegally trading in second-hand goods is high on the agenda of police in the Western Cape in their quest to reduce crime, they say.
