The managers of two popular restaurants in Sandton and Silverton were arrested by Gauteng police over the weekend for selling liquor to patrons.

Officers received information that the establishments were selling alcohol to customers in contravention of the level 3 lockdown regulations.

SAPS officials found the restaurant in Sandton on West Street filled to capacity and openly serving alcohol on the tables.

"Police pounced on the restaurant and found the place full to capacity and alcohol served openly on the tables and health protocols not adhered to", says police spokesperson captain Mavela Masondo.

Two of the managers were arrested and charged with the contravention of the Disaster Management Act.

Police also confiscated liquor to the value of approximately R600,000.

In the restaurant's storeroom, police found alcohol in ice buckets ready to be served.

Masondo says the manager was also arrested and charged with contravention of the Disaster Management Act.
