Suspects arrested for transportation elicit cigarettes

The Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation assisted by Limpopo Flying Squad members have successfully intercepted illicit cigarettes in transit at Matlala, outside Polokwane on 19 February 2021.

The Hawks received a tipoff about a vehicle that was transporting illicit cigarettes in the area and followed it up.

The chase ensued until the vehicle was cornered and the driver attempted to run on foot but he was caught before he could disappear.

The suspect is expected to appear in the Matlala Magistrate’s Court on Monday for contravening the Customs and Excise Act 91 of 1964.
