THE police have been additionally busy over the past few days fighting crime on the South Coasts and making arrests.

Last Friday, Port Shepstone station commander, Brigadier Sandra Nala, took the lead and engaged in a crime prevention operation in the CBD.

SAPS spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid said the goal was to reduce the number of robbery cases.

“The result was that three licenced premises were charged for contravening certain regulations of the Liquor Act,” said Wiid.

Other arrests were made for prostitution, drug possession, and two illegal immigrants were taken into custody and dangerous weapons were seized.

“During the operation detectives also arrested three wanted suspects, who allegedly assaulted a 51-year-old female complainant for laundry hanging on the line,” said Wiid. The female suspects aged 16, 23 and 24 will appear in court for assault. - Supplied.
