A Bulgarian has been  arrested earlier this morning for fraud and the illegal possession of ammunition.

SAPS members, Hawks and the Department of Home Affairs conducted a joint search operation at the residence of the man in Brackenfell. The man was identified as a person of interest.

The search warrant was issued after investigations into the suspect’s alleged organized crime activities necessitated it.

SAPS related that the search “yielded skimming devices, a cellular telephone jamming device, 10 cloned bank cards, several passports and identity documents, cash, homemade stamps from known companies, a magazine and 9mm rounds…”

While the circumstances surrounding the matter are still under investigation, the 43-year-old Bulgarian was arrested on charges of fraud and the illegal possession of ammunition.

He’s expected to appear before Bellville court on Monday 28 November 2016.
