According to reports, police confiscated alcohol to the value of R500 000 from a tavern in Dunoon, Cape Town. The tavern has allegedly been operating during the lockdown, completely ignoring regulations implemented by the South African Government.
Metro Police spokesperson, Ruth Solomons, told the Sunday Times, “At around 2.30pm, metro police were tipped off about alcohol being sold from a vehicle in the area. Officers soon found the Hyundai Getz and after a short pursuit, cornered the vehicle and arrested two men for failing to remain confined as per the lockdown regulations.”
The two men gave police an address where they found a customer buying alcohol from a door on the side.
Solomons added, “Inside, officers found three individuals who were arrested for selling prohibited goods. They also confiscated liquor, two fridges and just over R35 000 in cash. The suspects were all detained at Milnerton police station.”
