The Mitchell’s Plain police Cluster continued clamping down on crime in its eight policing precincts arresting 618 suspects.

Various operations held between Friday 15 and Thursday 21 July saw 242 suspects arrested for possession of drugs during stop and search operations and 87 houses searched for drugs.

During these operations over 1kg of dagga, 306 mandrax tablets, 430g of tik and 127g of heroin was confiscated.

There were 18 arrests for domestic violence related cases. Fines worth R25 500 were issued for traffic violations.

A further 21 premises were also searched to prevent the illegal sale of liquor.

Tracing operations resulted in 47 arrests of wanted persons.

Police further visited 1002 spaza shops, mostly owned by foreign nationals, resulting in two firearms being confiscated and three suspects being arrested for possessing illegal firearms.

The Mitchell’s Plain Cluster Commander, Major General Abraham Gregory Goss, says the police will maintain a zero tolerance approach in the prevention and investigation of crime.

He applauded the good work of all officers who participated in these operations in conjunction with other security forces.
