Early this morning, Operation Restore executed a successful roadblock on the N7 near Klawer, arresting two suspects who were found in possession of illegal precious stones, uncut diamonds, and rubies. The strategic deployment of Operation Restore members along entry and exit routes of the province proved to be effective in apprehending the suspects.

Arrests and Seizures

The Toyota bakkie with two occupants was pulled over during the roadblock, leading to the discovery of 29 unpolished diamonds and a significant amount of cash in the possession of one occupant. The other occupant was found with three rough rubies. Subsequently, the stones were seized, and the two suspects, aged 33 and 46, were arrested. Additionally, the vehicle was confiscated as evidence. Once charged with illegally possessing precious stones, the duo will appear in the Klawer Magistrates’ Court.

Importance of the Operation and Appreciation

The successful operation carried out by members of Operation Restore proves the importance of strategic deployment and dedication of law enforcement agencies. It is crucial to note that the illegal possession of precious stones, diamonds, and rubies not only violates the country’s laws but also affects the environment by promoting illicit mining and exploitation of natural resources. The swift action taken by the members of Operation Restore serves as a warning to those who engage in illegal activities that such behavior will not be tolerated.

The professionalism and bravery displayed by the members of Operation Restore should be appreciated and acknowledged. Their hard work and dedication to ensuring the safety and security of the province are commendable. We should take pride in the work done by these men and women who often risk their lives to keep our communities safe.
