“The focus of the operation is to target illegal window washers and smash-and-grab criminals.” JMPD spokesman Wayne Minnaar said

The operation, dubbed Ke Molao, was initiated on February 11.

Minnaar said there had been a considerable decline in the number of crimes happening at intersections in central Johannesburg.

The operation will continue to focus on identified hotspots.
