Fighting crime is a shared responsibility. The police, the community and the business sector need to work hand-in-hand to combat crime effectively in the Uitenhage precinct.

The South African Police Service appeal to the community to work with the SAPS in reducing crime by providing valuable information that will lead to the arrest of suspects and the recovery of stolen property.

According to police spokesperson, Lieutenant Gerda Swart, police officials in the Uitenhage Cluster have arrested more than 165 suspects during crime prevention operations that were conducted over the past weekend.

A total of 59 traffic fines were issued valued at almost R30 000 during the period. Arrests made varied from assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm, robbery, assault common and four (4) arrests were made for driving under the influence of liquor.

Some 54 fines were issued for other liquor related crimes and 27 suspects were arrested for the illegal possession of drugs.

Four suspects, between the ages of 18 and 32-years-old, appeared in the Addo Regional Court on Monday, on a charge of dealing in mandrax.

“The four suspects were arrested last Friday, during an intelligence driven operation with various SAPS role players involved,” said Lieutenant Swart.

“Police members confiscated 171 mandrax tablets worth R10 275 and R9 154 in cah. The arrests were made at a residential address in Valencia in Addo.”
