Several transactions were observed. Two people from the Public Prosecution Service were present during the action, which meant that the action could be taken quickly.

At around 3:45 p.m., officers saw a car driving at high speed across Pastoor Pottersplein. The officers wanted to set up a check and saw that the car drove into the Merelstraat. The driver left the vehicle there and fled on foot. When asked about his personal details at the control room, it turned out that he has now been caught driving without a license for the ninth time since 2018. The public prosecutor who was present at the action immediately decided to seize the car and confiscate it.
