Investigations by detective Constable Daryl van Noie of the Manenberg Police Station have seen him secure five convictions in the last month.

According to Manenberg police spokesperson Captain Ian Bennett, Van Noie has secured five convictions in five cases.

In one case, Boyes Mogamat Yusuf Doedie (29) was sentenced to 18 years in prison for housebreaking after he broke into a home in Jordan Street in May.

He was sentenced in the Wynberg Regional Court on 16 October for breaking into the home while the family was sleeping and stealing items to the value of R5000.

In another case, Waseem Ismail (29) was sentenced to five years in prison, of which two years is suspended for five years, for robbery. He was sentenced in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on 11 October for the robbery of a woman on her way to work in August. She was robbed of personal valuables and R70 cash.

“These successes show the true dedication and loyalty of the members of the Manenberg police. Brigadier Enolium Joseph is ecstatic about these court successes. If anyone has doubt in the capabilities of Manenberg police officers, this has to change,” states Bennett.

Also in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court, Moncus Eneraam Marcus (30) was sentenced to 18 months in prison for robbery. The court found that Marcus was involved in the robbery of a woman in September. The woman was robbed of R300 and other personal belongings when she was on her way home. Bennett says that two suspects were arrested initially, but that Marcus was the only one charged and found guilty.

Orrie Riedewaan (25) was sentenced to 18 months’ imprisonment in the Wynberg Regional Court on 17 October for housebreaking and theft. Riedewaan was found guilty of breaking into a home in Winterberg Crescent in Heideveld in May. He forced the security gate open before stealing valuables to the value of R2800.

Meanwhile, in a drug-related conviction, Abrahams Aashieq Akes (35) was fined R100 000 or five years imprisonment in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court. He had been caught with R26 000 worth of the drugs in Belinda Court.

“We will constantly strive to ensure that community confidence is won and that members of the police stay inspired through focused partnership with a back-to-basics approach to ensure quality service delivery,” says Bennett.
