The South African Police Service has confirmed that 74 people accused of involvement in the theft of British American Tobacco cigarettes will appear in the Khayelitsha Priority Court this week.

They were all involved in more than 100 cases of British American Tobacco cigarette theft.

National Commissioner of the police Riah Phiyega has urged commanders to intensify their efforts in their investigation of cigarette robberies.

Briagadier Vishnu Naidoo said they form part of the different gangs of groups if I may say, that were involved in robbing the British American Tobacco.

Naidoo said as a result of these successes we found that the crime in this area has reduced quite significantly, so there is indeed been a huge impact as far as our efforts are concerned.
