On June 29, at about 3.30pm, twenty-one (21) suspects were arrested for malicious damage to property, this is the property in Link Road, Langlaagte. The building is formally known as the ‘United National Breweries (Unb) – Egoli Brewery.
According to communications officer Constable Kraai from Langlaagte police station, the operation was conducted by the Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) and the Tactical Response Team (TRT) from the Langlaagte police station.
All the metal pieces from the building are being removed.
“The suspects are all appearing in court today and the outcome will only be known after today.” When asked if the police are present on the property, Constable Kraai said:
“It is part of our patrol and crime prevention, our offices are not based on the premises but they do go and check throughout the day.

” We went onto the property this afternoon to find two men still busy taking the metal structures apart from the building for ‘cash for scrap’. The two men saw the police offices and managed to escape jail time today.
Kraai concluded by saying as long as there is a business for scrap metal, people will always be vandalising vacant properties in our community. Few of our photo gallery to see how vandalised the building really is. 6520916665
