The Reiger Park police have again disposed of confiscated alcohol. This time, officers destroyed about 2 000 litres of booze in their storage facility, Boksburg Advertiser reports.
Police officers involved poured more than 1 320 bottles of beer down the drain at the police station on April 24.
According to the newly-appointed Reiger SAPS spokesperson, Const Jan Mokwana, the disposed of alcohol, worth thousands of rands, was seized during a recent blitz targeting illegal shebeens in Reiger Park, Ramaphosa and Delmore informal settlements.
Mokwana added that in their policing precinct alcohol is seen as being the largest contributing factor to anti-social behaviour and other crimes, including domestic violence and assault.
The crates of empty bottles were taken back to the breweries.
