Police have had their hands full following the arrest of 21 wanted suspects in the past week.

For the most recent arrest on Thursday Mitchell’s Plain police, in conjunction with the Mitchell’s Plain cluster, held an integrated crime prevention and tracing operation of wanted suspects. The operation included sector commanders, detectives, law enforcement and metro police officials, says police spokesperson Sergeant Jerome Voegt.

“[A total of] 50 suspects were brought in for criminal profiling, of which the members detected 21 suspects who are wanted [in connection with crimes].

“The members managed to trace these suspects across the Mitchell’s Plain policing precinct. These men are wanted for various cases, including murder and possession of drugs,” he says.

One of these suspects, a 33-year-old man, was arrested in Albatros Street, Rocklands on Thursday afternoon.

After the police sector commanders of Rocklands and Westridge responded to information about the whereabouts of the suspect, the members arrested him, as well as four other wanted men aged between 24 and 40 years.

Members attached to the Mitchell’s Plain tactical response team recovered an abandoned 9mm Z88 firearm with live rounds of ammunition in Epsom Street, Beacon Valley late on Sunday 25 October.

The Mitchell’s Plain police management says it appreciates the community for their continuous support during the crime prevention operations.

They urge the public to contact their local sector commanders with accurate information on illegal activities.
