A MULTI-DISCIPLINARY crime prevention operation in the Hibberdene and Mfazazana areas on Friday night ended in success after Major-General Sethenya Agnes Nxamagele, Ugu Cluster Commander, and her members made several arrests.

Identification Section (VIS), Crime Intelligence, Detectives, Hibberdene SAPS, Tactical Response Team (TRT), 10111 Flying Squad and the Cluster Commander’s office assembled at 6.45pm and were briefed by the Cluster Commander.

Inspections were carried out to ensure that the liquor outlets were operating in compliance with their liquor licences and patrons were searched for drugs, dangerous weapons and unlicensed firearms.

The operation continued until the early hours of the next morning and the successes included two arrests for dealing in liquor without a licence, five for the unlawful possession of dagga, two for the unlawful possession of heroin (whoonga capsules), three for offences under the Road Traffic Act, two on warrants of arrest for failing to attend court on housebreaking charges and two arrests of suspects who were on the wanted list for assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

The Cluster Commander was pleased with the arrests and recoveries resulting from the operation and conveyed her thanks and appreciation to members who worked in inclement weather with total commitment.
