Boschkop Police Station cracked down on illegal taverns and closed down four of them within a week.

After receiving numerous complaints about three illegal taverns at Ou Kraalmuur, the police, in conjunction with the community, decided to perform a clean-up operation. It took four days to plan the operation for Saturday 23 January at 10 pm.

One permanent police member, two members of the Pretoria dog unit, six reservist police and about twenty members of the public went to Ou Kraal Muur to hit all three taverns at the same time.

One of the taverns was closed, but the other two were in full swing and about four hundred litres of liquor, all the fridges, sound systems and the computer used to play music, were confiscated.

Two people were arrested for illegal dealing in liquor. They paid admission of guilt and were released by the Boschkop SAPS. The two owners of the illegal taverns didn’t get their liquor or equipment back.

On Thursday 28 January at about 9 pm Insp Francoise Nolte and R/Sgt Francoise Fourie closed yet another illegal tavern in the Boschkop SAPS policing district with the help of the community.

The sector manager of sector four informed the police that there was an illegal tavern on plot 162 Mooiplaats. The 51 year old Mozambique female owner of this illegal tavern was arrested while making Sorghum beer in a fifty litre drum. She was also selling other liquor to the public.

A case of dealing in liquor without a license and making liquor without a license was opened against this woman. She was arrested and brought to Boschkop SAPS where she was kept in the cells until she appeared in court.

Boschkop SAPS thanks the community for helping them to close the illegal taverns.
