Two arrested in Modimolle for distributing fake starter packs


The Police in Limpopo are still discharging their commitment, passion, professionalism and determination towards their line of duty by performing services for the good of its society.

This was evident when two suspects aged 26 and 36 were arrested yesterday on 14 May 2018 by the Modimolle police who were performing their patrol duties.

The suspects are believed to be part of the group which is contravening the Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of Communication-Related/Information Act 70 of 2002.

It is alleged that the duo were found distributing the pre-registered starter packs in Modimolle CBD and they were immediately apprehended.

The starter packs use false identify documents and false addresses.

The two suspects will make their first court appearance soon on a charge of Contravention of Electronic Communication Act.

The SAPS Provincial Commissioner, Lt. General Nneke Ledwaba has applauded the Modimolle Police for their commitment in serving the community.

We are condemning such acts of providing pre-registered starter packs to the community as it hinders police investigations and as a result, police resources are used fruitlessly, concluded General Ledwaba.

More arrests are expected because we believe that this might be a bigger crime syndicate engaged on this crime category.

The Police investigations are still continuing.
