Joint blitz on illegal liquor traders near Moreleta Park proves successful

Forty-five cases of liquor were confiscated from illegal liquor traders in Plastic View, an informal settlement near Moreleta Park, on 22 September, thanks to the joint efforts of the Garsfontein SAPS, Fidelity ADT and other security companies.

Fidelity ADT’s Community Development Manager, Maurice Malan, says the joint operation took place during the morning and included stop and searches as well as raids on the local illegal liquor traders. “We took the operation to Plastic View, Moreleta Park; Water Glen Shopping Centre in Waterkloof; Rubenstein Street, and Hesketh Street. We pride ourselves in being part of these operations as it really demonstrates a show of force that sends a strong message to the community that crime will not be tolerated,” he says.
