On Wednesday, 11 January 2022 at about 18:45 members of the George Public Order Police armed with a search and seizure warrant conducted an operation at a house at Zone 06, Thembalethu. A search of the premises ensued and the members found a laptop, card reader and a point of sale device as well as several cards.
