Arrive Alive

Rangers commended for intercepting suspects from smuggling illicit goods.

The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Mondli Zuma, has commended Wild Rangers from the Kruger National Park for arresting seven suspects and recovered illicit goods yesterday.

According to information, the rangers were on duty patrolling along the fence which separates South Africa and Mozambique. They then spotted a group of about 20 men from the side of Mozambique entering the Kruger National Park. These men started running after being instructed by the rangers to stop. Seven of of them were however apprehended but others, managed to flee. The men were found in possession of illicit cigarettes, liqour as well as skin whitening creams wrapped in black plastic bags estimated to be worth about R 78 000. Police were notified about the incident and they then charged the suspects with several cases including possession of counterfeit cigarettes, liquor, contravention of the Illegal Immigration Act as well as trespassing.

General Zuma has lauded the rangers for their vigilance which yielded positive results as they managed to recover the illicit goods as well as apprehend the suspects. "We are delighted to have such men and women who are eager to fight crime. These rangers managed to intercept several suspects before the illicit goods could reach the targeted market," said General Zuma.

Meanwhile the arrested suspects are expected to appear at the Bushbuckridge Magistrate's Court on Monday, 03 August 2020.
