Police nets 94 suspects in U’hage Cluster

Several crime intelligence led high density disruptive operations continued to yield positive results in the Uitenhage Cluster, when 94 suspects were arrested.

Performing their duties in line with the Back to Basics approach, members from the Uitenhage Cluster continued to clamp down on criminal activities over the past weekend, by conducting high visibility patrols and stop and search operations.

According to police spokesperson Captain Gerda Swart, the suspects were arrested for crimes ranging from murder to possession of drugs, possession of suspected stolen property, drunken driving, burglary residential, assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm and theft.

A total of 31 traffic fines were issued, valued at more than R15 500.

The focus of the operations was on trio crimes, wanted suspects, the transportation of stolen property, illegal drugs, driving under the influence of liquor and lawlessness in the Cluster.

SAPS also encourage the community to work with them in reducing crime and they appeal to the community to provide valuable information that will lead to the arrest of suspects involved in the hijacking of motor vehicles, house robberies and business robberies (commonly referred to by the SAPS as trio crimes) which will ultimately lead to the conviction of these criminals.
