SAB trucks impounded for contravening lockdown regulations

 A total of five South African Breweries (SAB) trucks were impounded on Wednesday, for contravening Disaster Management Act lockdown regulations.



Gauteng Traffic Police spokesperson, Obed Sibasa, says the trucks were pulled off the road during two separate COVID-19 operations.

In both incidents, the trucks were found to be transporting alcohol, which is not permitted during the 21-day lockdown period.

"Three trucks were impounded for transporting alcohol during a lockdown from rosslyn in Pretoria. The manager, two fork lifters and three drivers were arrested. They are all detained in Silverton police station for contravening the disaster management Act regulations and will appear in court soon," says Sibasa.

He adds that two other drivers were also arrested in the West Rand and released after paying a fine.

They were transporting alcohol worth about R13million to an unknown location.

"The drivers were arrested and released after paying a  fine. Police are looking for the managers who issued the instruction for the trucks to deliver, so they can be arrested," says Sibasa.
