A Crime intelligence driven operation by the Vryburg K9 Unit, culminated in the arrest of a middle aged Lesotho national on Friday morning, 10 February 2023, for possession of endangered species.
The suspect was arrested after intelligence gathered about possession of endangered species in Tlakgameng village near Ganyesa outside Vryburg was operationalised.
