1 criminal intimidation resisting arrest. .

“We are also warning members of the public not to threaten the officers who are conducting the raids as we had an incident during a raid where a suspect threatened the raid team with a cane knife.

“If they are man enough to associate themselves with these illegal activities then they should be man enough to face the consequences when caught as we will not tolerate any threats against our officers.”
