Several arrests were made on Christmas Day when Hazyview SAPS and traffic officials launched an operation under the umbrella of Operation Fiela.

A total of 12 people were arrested for drinking in public, while two motorists were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.

A man from Masoyi appeared in the Kabokweni Magistrate’s Court on December 22 after he was found in possession of unlicesed firearms and ammunition.

He was arrested at 21:00 the previous evening as a result of an intelligence-driven operation executed by the National Intervention Unit at Mahushu.

The suspect was stopped while driving and during a search of his vehicle a .303 rifle was found. He failed to produce a license.

Further investigation led police to his house, when they also seized a 9mm Norinco and ammunition.

The firearms were sent to ballistics for testing and an investigation was underway to check whether they were used in the commission of other serious crimes and if the suspect was involved in other crimes.
