On 15 May 2018, the police received a tip off from a community member about the illicit cigarettes stored in a house within the Louis Trichardt CBD.

A joint operation between the 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 which resulted in the arrest of a 30-year-old female suspect and recovered bags containing illicit Pacific Blue cigarettes inside the garage.
