08 February 2018 | From Arrive Alive


Tshwane Metro Police officers have today Thursday 08 February 2018 made an outstanding arrest after discovering a place where fraudulent documents are being produced.

The officers stopped a Taxi which was driving facing on coming traffic in Van Der Hoff street at around 06h35 in the morning. They requested the driver to produce his driving permits.

Upon inspection of the PDP he produced, the officers noticed that the bar code on the permit was suspicious.

After a confirmation was made, they found that the permits were faked and the barcode belonged to a person who doesn't even possess a drivers license.

Upon further questioning, the Taxi driver led the officers to an address in Mabopane Station where he purchased the documents.

When officers arrived at the address, Two suspects fled and they managed to apprehend one who was at the premises.

They then found that they also produce other fraudulent documents such as driver's licences; birth certificates, death certificates, Matric certificates and ID documents.

Laptops and computers suspected to be used to produce the documents were also found in the premises.

Materials from the home affairs and traffic departments were also amongst the documents found.

Both male suspects aged 33 and 42 were arrested. The investigation continues and more arrests are expected.

TMPD commends the officers for a job well done.
