A reveller welcomed 2024 behind bars despite having R6,000 worth of alcohol.

The unnamed man failed to explain where he got his stock after he was bust during a routine patrol.

“Routine patrols are vital in ensuring the safety and security of our communities,” says Sergeant Mahlomola Kareli, the police spokesperson.

“In this case, the alertness of our officers led to the swift apprehension of the suspect and the recovery of a significant amount of alcoholic beverages.”

The incident serves as a reminder of the ongoing issue of illegal activities, particularly the possession and distribution of alcohol without proof of purchase.

“Alcohol-related crimes can have serious consequences for individuals and communities,” warns Kareli.

Kareli added that it is important for law enforcement agencies to remain vigilant and proactive in their efforts to combat such activities.”

The value of R6000 worth of alcohol in the possession of the suspect indicates a potential involvement in illegal sales or distribution.

“We will continue to crack down on illegal alcohol activities. These activities not only undermine legitimate businesses but also contribute to various societal problems, including addiction, health issues, and an increase in crime rates.”

The incident also highlights the need for educational campaigns to promote responsible drinking and raise awareness about the dangers of alcohol abuse.

“We need to work together as a community to address the root causes of alcohol-related crimes,” emphasizes Kareli.

“By promoting responsible drinking and supporting those struggling with alcohol addiction, we can create a safer and healthier society.”

The swift action taken by the Bloemfontein Flying Squad in apprehending the suspect demonstrates the dedication and commitment of law enforcement officers in ensuring the safety of the community.
