The Essential Hotplates.

BURGERSFORT – The SAPS have been hard at work fighting crime. The station’s management is determined to fight the abuse of drugs and dagga.

Const Victoria Maluleleke, the Burgersfort SAPS communication officer, said they have apprehended 14 people this past week.”On March 5 we arrested four males for possession of drugs. We apprehended them at Motaganeng and Aloe Ridge and they are still in custody. The men are aged between 29 and 49.”Maluleke added that on March 7 another 10 men were arrested in Burgersfort and Steelpoort for possession of dagga.”We want to get rid of dagga and drugs, and plead with the public to help give information about the drug lords destroying our country,” she said.

Meanwhile, a Pakistani man was apprehended at Extension 10 for possession of suspected stolen property.”We received a tip-off about the man who sold Essential-branded hotplates at his shop. We called the management of Shoprite and they confirmed that the hotplates were indeed from their stores. The 15 hotplates were confiscated from the suspect and he was arrested. He is still in custody as we continue with investigations,” Maluleke said.
