The Cluster Commander for Graaff Reinet, Brigadier Rudolph Adolph commended the outstanding efforts of our men in blue as they continue in their actions in ‘taking back the streets’ from criminals and gaining public confidence from the community they serve.

As part of the SAPS vigilant back to basics approach to policing by members of the Graaff Reinet Cluster, it resulted in the arrest of a 34 year old male suspect for the possession of suspected stolen goods. Due to the swift action by members of Pearston this morning, Thursday, 14 June 2018 at 02:50, 160kg of mohair to the estimated value of R50 000 was recovered.

The Graaff Reinet Cluster Commander, Brigadier Rudolph Adolph praised the officials and said: “the two members did a sterling job and we believe that the arrest will serve as a deterrent to other would-be offenders”.

The Cluster Commander also encouraged the community to contact their local police station to report any criminal activities, or SAPS Crime stop number 08600 10111, as callers may remain anonymous.
