Crimes hit hard
06 September 2018

Several authorities in the Goldfields had a successful joint operation to combat the illegal manufacturing of liquor, the selling of liquor without a licence, the selling of expired goods to the community and illegal immigration.

The national and Free State Firearm Liquor and Second-Hand Goods Unit (Flash), the Department of Home Affairs, the Local Record and Criminal Centre and the Department of Agriculture all joined forces from Thursday (30/08) to Saturday (01/09).

Several suspects were arrested for the manufacturing of liquor without registering the business entity, selling liquor without a licence, selling expired goods to customers, illegal immigration and bribery.

A large quantity of alcohol and expired goods and home brew beer were seized during this operation.

The authorities visited businesses in Riebeeckstad where expired foods – such as chips, chicken and tinned products – were sold to customers.

A liquor business was also shut down when the barman was arrested for selling liquor without a licence.

A large quantity of beer was seized.

The authorities also visited a farm in the Odendaalsrus district, Nuwejaarsbosch, where five foreigners – Chinese and Mozambicans – were arrested and charged under the Liquor Act for manufacturing liquor or methylated spirits without being registered.

These men are aged 22 to 40 years old, and they appeared in the Odendaalsrus Magistrate’s Court on Monday (03/09).

The case was postponed for bail application until today (06/09).
