Limpopo Highway Patrollers arrests six suspects for various crimes


SAPS members attached to the Limpopo Highway Patrol (LHP) managed to arrest six suspects for various crimes during operations that were conducted on the R37 on Sunday.

At about 19:00, the members were patrolling along R37 road next to Podungwane when they spotted a suspicious vehicle at Caltex Filling station in the Lebowakgomo policing area.

“The white Volkswagen Polo without registration numbers was stopped and found with three occupants inside. The vehicle was searched and it was discovered that the license disc is not original and was tampered with. The three suspects were immediately arrested for driving the vehicle with fraudulent documents,” revealed spokesperson for the SAPS Brig Motlafelo Mojapelo.

In another incident, at about 19:30 members received information from members of the community about a Silver Volkswagen Polo sedan allegedly transporting drugs from Polokwane to Lebowakgomo.

“The vehicle was followed until it reached the filling station when police moved in tactically and managed to arrest a foreign national in possession of 67 stones of drugs with the estimated street value of R15 000.00, “added Mojapelo

The suspects arrested are expected to appear before the local magistrate courts soon.
