On 2018-02-20 at about 13:00 Ekurhuleni East Trio task team members arrested a male aged 24 for defeating the course of justice.

The arrest came after the tireless investigation of a house robbery case that was alleged to have occurred on the 201-02-03 at 03:00 at 2828 Praine Street, Geluksdal, Ext 2 (Tsakane Policing Precinct) that was opened by the suspect as a complainant in that case.

Through investigation it was discovered that the suspect opened the false case.

Tsakane SAPS would like to warn the community to refrain from opening false cases as that will consequently lead to the arrest of those who open false cases.

Tsakane SAPS Station Commander, Colonel Johannes Maass discourage the opening of false cases as it makes it difficult for management to get the correct picture of the crime and allocate resources according as there are other genuine cases that need police attention.
