LIMPOPO – Police spokesperson, Lt Col Moatshe Ngoepe says the remarkable partnership between the Makhado Police and the Louis Trichardt community based crime prevention structures continues to bear positive and meaningful results.

This follows the arrest of a 30-year-old woman in the Louis Trichardt CBD.

“On Tuesday, 15 May, police received a tip off from a resident about illicit cigarettes being stored in a house within the Louis Trichardt CBD. A joint operation between Makhado Police members and the Louis Trichardt Town Watch, led by the Makhado SAPS Station Commander Colonel Nyelisani Mabatha, was immediately activated and reacted swiftly,” Ngoepe explained.

This resulted in the arrest of the suspect and bags containing illicit Pacific Blue cigarettes inside found in the suspect’s garage were recovered.

“This is a clear indication that together, working hand in hand in the fight against crime, we can do more. The suspect will appear before the Louis Trichardt Magistrate court, soon,” he concluded.
