Suspects to appear in court for damaging essential infrastructure

Our pursuit to tackle the destruction of essential infrastructure led to the arrests of three suspects aged between 25 and 49 in the Waterkloof area, near Ladismith on Sunday. Members of Ladismith SAPS received information of a light delivery vehicle that is transporting stolen property. The identified vehicle was stopped and searched and nine grain bags of copper cables with a weight of 186 kilogram were found on the back of the vehicle. The estimated street value of the copper cables is R26 500.

The suspects face a charge of damage and destruction of infrastructure and will appear in the Ladismith Magistrates court on Wednesday.
