Cape Town- A man who allegedly ran an illicit licencing and police clearance operation was arrested at his Belhar home on Sunday, the Western Cape Hawks said.

The 33-year-old's arrest followed an investigation in conjunction with the Transport Department, said spokesperson Captain Lloyd Ramovha.

Officials seized almost R5.3m, several ID documents and two vehicles. 

The man faced charges of money laundering, corruption and racketeering.

He was set to appear in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Ramovha said their investigation continued and possibilities of further arrests could not be ruled out.
