Police spokesperson Captain Sergio Kock said the suspects were sought in connection with various crimes.

“Roodepan SAPS Detectives followed up on information and conducted a tracing operation that resulted in the apprehension and arrest of 12 males and one female suspect,” said Kock. “On Wednesday, December 22, from about 4am, detectives searched several premises and arrested unsuspecting wanted suspects at their homes in Roodepan and surrounding areas. The suspects are wanted for charges varying from assault GBH, domestic violence, theft, robbery, contravention of protection orders and housebreaking.”
