Tip-offs lead to drug busts

2016-06-07 06:00

Wynberg Police would like to urge residents to continue reporting crime so that they can arrest the perpetrators.

In recent weeks police have made arrests for drug peddling due to community members who bravely gave information and descriptions of the drug dealers.

Last week, while on patrol, police were approached twice with information on a drug dealer in Betting World.

Warrant Officer Goliath Botman and Constable Yusuf Williams entered Hollywood Betting with drugs in his hand. When he saw the police he put the drugs in his mouth and tried to swallow them.

In a separate incident Sergeant Gakiem Laubsher and Williams were informed of another man sitting at Betting World selling drugs. Officers searched the man and found 13 packets of tik. The man was arrested.

Wynberg police spokesperson Lieutenant Ntomboxolo Nqunqeka thanks all those who informed the police of these criminal activities.

Police would like to urge more community members to assist with tip-offs by contacting the Sector 1 commander on 079 894 1469.
