THE SAPS Serious Organised Crime Investigation team arrested three suspects for allegedly tampering with essential infrastructure in Kimberley on April 11.

The team followed up on information about three employees of a subcontractor who allegedly entered the power sub-station in North Circular Road and removed eight batteries.
