The Anti Gang Unit (AGU) members are leaving no stone unturned when it comes to fighting crime on the streets.

Their concerted efforts to rid the streets of drugs and firearms that generate other serious violent crimes continued when they pursued information and arrested four suspects, seizing a firearm in addition to large quantities of drugs, in Plumstead on Friday 19 April.

Provincial police spokesperson Brigadier Novela Potelwa says in a targeted raid, AGU members with much-needed intelligence pounced on two residences in Plumstead. “In one dwelling in Normandy Village, officers arrested three suspects aged 33, 35 and 36 for possession of a prohibited firearm, ammunition and dealing in drugs,” she says.

The confiscated items are as follows: 370 ecstacy tablets; 34 live rounds of a 9mm firearm; three 9mm firearm magazines; one Vector Z88 firearm; a large quantity of different sizes of plastic bags and one business transaction book.

As part of the same raid, in the second dwelling in Gull Road in Southfield, AGU members arrested another suspect aged 36 for dealing in drugs.

Items confiscated include the following: 1544 ecstacy tablets; three large containers of dagga and just over R51 000 cash.

“The suspect face charges of dealing in drugs.

“All arrested suspects appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday 23 April. Further investigations into whether the suspects could be linked to other crime continue.

“The unrelenting efforts of the unit are commended by police management in creating safety within Cape Town communities,” says Potelwa.
