There were a total of 19 drug arrests, 88 traffic fines issued, 156 speeding cases, eight compliance notices issued by the SHU in terms of rental stock units, three notices issued for illegal alcohol sales and 13 fines for solicitation

Drugs confiscated included: 24 packets of tik, 53 mandrax tablets, 18 units of heroin, 114 bankies of dagga, a parcel of dagga and 106 dagga ‘stoppe’

Senior Superintend for Cape Town Metro police says many of the complaints attended to are the result of tips from the public.

“We appreciate the willingness of some community members to help address social ills in their areas. The City will continue with this type of disruptive policing as it not only ensures a visible presence in gang-stricken communities, but also presents an opportunity to make arrests and gather more intelligence in the ­process.”
