Suspects arrested for alleged illegal mining


The determination of the SAPS in Limpopo to eradicate activities of illegal mining, led to the arrest of four suspects during operations that were conducted by members of Public Order Policing (POP) on Tuesday night along the R37 road in Apel.

“The members spotted three trucks along this road and pulled them over.

“The trucks were found with loads of suspected unprocessed chrome and were all confiscated. The four suspects were then apprehended,” said Limpopo SAPS spokesman Brig Motlafelo Mojapelo.

The Provincial Commissioner of Police in Limpopo Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe has commended the members for their efforts, saying these arrests will go a long way in eradicating illegal mining activities in the Province.

The suspects, three foreign nationals and a South African aged between 23 and 34 are scheduled to appear before the Sekhukhune Magistrate’s court today, Thursday (July 8) on charges related to illegal mining.
SAPS Investigations continue.
