Liquor confiscated on beaches

Alcohol confiscated on city beaches.
Law enforcement officers confiscated 176 bottles of alcohol at Clifton, Camps Bay and Maidens Cove, on Saturday November 10.

Twelve fines of R500 each were issued to offenders.

The City of Cape Town has warned members of the public not to bring alcohol to beaches as it will be confiscated and fines will be issued to the perpetrators.

Officers, who were on foot patrol, confiscated 33 hats, 19 baseball caps and 16 sunglasses from illegal traders.

Some of the illegal traders have in the past been found to be selling alcohol among their other goods.

The City says officers will be cracking down on those who don’t follow procedure in terms of the informal trading rules.
