Kensington police arrested an alleged drug dealer and four other suspects in Factreton last Thursday 8 February.

According to Kensington police spokesperson, Sergeant Angelina Grill, the four suspects were found with 3kg compressed dagga at a house in Ventura Street during a crime prevention operation. They were also found with two illegal firearms and an undisclosed amount of money. She says the firearms were hidden under a kitchen sink inside the house. Grill says the suspects face charges of possession of unlicensed firearms, possession of ammunition and possession of drugs.

Zainulabideen van der Schyff, spokesperson for the KenFac Community Policing Forum, says: “The Kensington CPF congratulates our local heroes for their proactive efforts in their ongoing fight against drugs and gangsterism in our precinct.”

He says the CPF will continue supporting and working closely with the police to eradicate crime.
