GEORGE NEWS - Husband and wife, Lornene and Riaan Tromp, both members of the SAP Conville crime prevention unit, were hard at work to protect the citizens of George on Christmas Day.
 
"For the greater part of the day we assisted our colleagues in an operation conducted by the Hawks who nabbed a 45-year-old man on the N9 between Uniondale and Herold. The police found Mandrax tablets worth R3.75 million in his possession.
 
We were part of the back-up support team," said Lornene.
 
The Hawks found the drugs in a secret compartment in the roof of a white Hyundai minibus. They were assisted by the Outeniqua K9 dog unit from George and members from the Conville crime prevention unit.
 
Riaan told the George Herald the rest of the Christmas Day shift was peaceful. "Most people were generally well behaved except for the occasional incident that we had to defuse."
 
Lornene was overjoyed that the couple did not have to work on New Year's Day. "We spent New Year's Day with our daughter Lorrain, who turned one on 1 January."
