Police arrested 60 people in an early morning crime prevention operation in Galeshewe in the Northern Cape.

Suspects were between the ages of 17 and 50.

They were wanted for robbery, theft, assault, fraud, attempted murder and malicious damage to property

Captain Tony Modise is quoted as saying some of the suspects were on the run and in hiding since cases were made against them.

Some of them who appeared in court never returned for their next appearance, warrants have been issued for their arrest.

The suspects will have their fingerprints taken to determine whether they were wanted in connection with any other crimes.

The operation “Uxolo” will continue throughout the festive season.

Uxolo will include the tracing of wanted suspects, the raiding of illegal shebeens, and stop and search operations at roadblocks.
