Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut said that in the early hours of Friday morning during a joint operation between the police, Hawks and the Department of Home Affairs, a residence in Brackenfell was raided.

During the raid, police found skimming devices, a cellular telephone jamming device, cloned bank cards, several passports, identity documents, money, homemade stamps from known companies, a magazine, 9mm rounds of ammunition, as well as R5 rounds.
