The first phase of today’s operation was a roadblock on the R72 road by the BCM ladies that made sure that the motorists and visitors felt safe when they were travelling towards and outside the East London area.

The team was made of the South African Police Service, BCM Traffics, Provincial Traffics, Law Enforcement, Social Workers and Men for Change.

They managed to stop and search the vehicles; traffic fines were issued to some vehicles that contravened the traffic Acts.

A total amount of R27 700 traffic fines was issued. The roadblock was also honoured by the BCM District Commissioner Major General Vos, Chief Traffic Officer Mr Jacobs, Chief Traffic Officer Tokwe, and CPF member Amanda Timms.

While the team was busy with a roadblock, information was received by the motorists that a naked lady suspected to be mentally disturbed was walking along the road, and she was followed by two males.

Different stakeholders were also present together with the community members, and the event was well attended.

A female in her fifties was arrested for Dealing in Dagga, and a male suspect in his thirties was also arrested for Possession of live ammunition. Dangerous weapons were also found and confiscated from his shack and are booked on the exhibit register.
