Drug trafficking and extortion are two of the gang’s most notorious criminal activities, among others.

The suspect is a member of an infamous gang that engages in drug trafficking, extortion, and other illegal acts, according to the South African police statement. He was taken into custody with 7 other suspects.

Five assault weapons, seven handguns, about $40,000 (NIS 137,000), and three motorcycles were among the things taken into custody by police officials after the suspect’s arrest.
