EASTERN CAPE – On Saturday evening, 05 August 2023, SAPS Cookhouse Highway patrol members conducted a vehicle check point on the N10/R63 intersection focussing on illegal firearms, drugs and abalone.

When a Honda Amaze with tinted dark windows stopped, the members became suspicious as the driver and occupants could be heard, however they took a while before opening the windows.

The occupants were searched and just as the vehicle was circulated for ownership, members were informed that the vehicle was just reported stolen in Beacon Bay earlier.

The driver and three passengers (female and 2 males) aged between 22-52 years old were arrested. The driver was detained on possession of a stolen vehicle and the occupants were detained for possession of drugs. Eight mandrax tablets, three pieces of crystal rock and one sachet of tik were confiscated.

The arrested suspects are expected to appear in the Somerset East magistrate court on Monday, 7 August 2023.
