On Tuesday 9 March at approximately 07:15, members of the Mkhondo SAPS Vispol Unit conducted a roadblock on the N2 Pongola road at the Moolman intersection.
During the operation, they stopped the driver of a double cab bakkie. Upon searching the vehicle, they found 11 Vodacom cellular-tower batteries. The man who was driving the bakkie was questioned why he had them in his possession but, he could give no reasonable explanation and be arrested.
The value of the batteries amounts to approximately R100 000-00.
Very well done to the officers who intercepted the stolen goods.
