“During our operation, a total number of 141 premises were searched and [there were] four roadblocks in which three notorious hijackers [were arrested], one of them a habitual house robber who has been terrorizing Alexandra and Sandringham community. The police also made an arrest for the crime such as domestic violence, drugs, and stolen property,” said Malatjie.

We appeal to all community members to report all criminal activities to the police.”
