Weekend operations in Grassy Park since Thursday have led to eight arrests.

Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith says members of the crime prevention unit observed a man selling counterfeit CDs to the public in Victoria Road, Grassy Park on Thursday at about 17:00.

“Members then arrested the suspect with 189 CDs and charged him with dealing in counterfeit goods.

“A 31-year-old foreign national of Parow was arrested and was due to appear in court [yesterday],” Kleinsmith says.

The rest of the weekend’s crime operations included arrests for crimes mostly related to drug possession, Kleinsmith says.

On Friday at 15:00 a 64-year-old man was arrested with a parcel of dagga after a house search was done in Daniel Crescent, Grassy Park. The man was arrested on charges of possession of dagga.

“Another man, aged 30, was arrested at 17:00 in Cuckoo Crescent, Parkwood on charges of possession of drugs after a packet of tik, dagga and a mandrax tablet were found on him.

“Afterwards another man, aged 34, was arrested after he was found in possession of a heroin tablet,” she adds.

Kleinsmith adds at 17:30 a 24-year-old man was arrested outside Peter Court, Ottery on charges of possession of drugs after information was received of a man selling drugs. Police searched him and found four packets of tik in his possession.

“At 21:30 a 22-year-old man was arrested outside Rosedale Court, Ottery on charges of possession of dagga after one stop of dagga was found on him.

“And at 22:15 a 39-year-old man was arrested in Oriel Crescent, Parkwood on charges of possession of drugs after a mandrax half tablet and a stop of dagga were found on him.”

Two more suspects were arrested later on Friday evening after more drugs were found in Ottery and Grassy Park.

“At 01:30 a 24-year-old man was arrested outside Rina Court, Ottery on charges of possession of drugs after 29 half and 10 whole mandrax tablets and cash were found on the suspect. At 02:00 a 46-year-old man was arrested on the corner of Perth Road and 7th Avenue on charges of possession of dagga after he was found in possession of one stop of dagga.”
