Two foreign nationals were arrested in Cape Town for allegedly stealing 216 boxes of beer valued at almost R600 000 from a warehouse in Montague Gardens.
According to Police spokesperson, Wesley Twigg reporting to SABC News, “Police members pursued information and studied visual video footage that was at their disposal. The initial intelligence-driven operation led them to an address where the members patiently observed two light delivery vehicles offloading cargo.”
“This action paved the way for a joint operation between Crime Intelligence, Vehicle Crime Investigation Unit detectives and Bellville police on Tuesday, 11 October 2022 at a local liquor outlet in Strand Road, Bellville, where they confiscated 216 boxes of beer with a total value of R600 000,” added Twigg.
“The vehicle was later found abandoned in Athlone. He says the suspects aged 27 and 36 years old are expected to appear in court once they’ve been charged.”
