Grassy Park police made six arrests on various charges during last week.

Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith says two men were arrested on Wednesday after they were found driving a stolen vehicle.

“On Wednesday at about 10:45 visible police members were busy with patrols in Victoria Road, Grassy Park when the members spotted a blue Nissan bakkie. The vehicle was tested and came out negative,” Kleinsmith says.

However, upon further investigation and searching the vehicle, members found another registration number.

“This was tested and revealed that the vehicle was stolen in a Muizenberg case.”

The two men, aged 25 and 38, were arrested on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle and possession of housebreaking implements, as different types of tools were found in the vehicle.

Kleinsmith adds the suspects are also sought at Kirstenhof, Diepriver and Wynberg police stations for similar cases.

In another incident later the same day, Kleinsmith says the crime prevention unit were in Ottery when members observed a man at Rooikrans Court receiving money and giving another man something in return.

“Police members approached the man and searched him. They found 38 packets of tik on him. The suspect was arrested on charges of dealing and possession of drugs,” Kleinsmith says. The 42-year-old suspect will appear in court.

Another suspect was arrested at about 15:00 on the same day when police observed the man in Edward Road, Ottery.

“As he saw the marked vehicle he started to run. Members gave chase and upon catching and searching him they found 32 packets of tik on him.”

The 17-year-old suspect was arrested on charges of dealing and possession of drugs.

At about 18:40 on Wednesday evening members observed two suspects on the corner of Buck Road and 6th Avenue, Lotus River. “When the suspect saw the marked vehicle he ran into a well-known drug outlet yard. Members pursued the suspect and upon searching him they found 15 halves and two full mandrax tablets as well as five packets of tik.”

Two suspects, a man and a woman both aged 29, were arrested on charges of dealing and possession of drugs.
