The eradication and clamping down on the illicit sale of drugs continue to be the focus in the Mount Road cluster during this Easter weekend. Police Emergency Services (PES) are patrolling hotspot areas to ensure the safety of our citizens as well as limiting the movement of criminals.
Within 12 hours yesterday, 19 April 2019, PE K9 unit members arrested 6 suspects, seized almost R300 000 worth of drugs and recovered suspected stolen property.
Mount Road Cluster Commander, Major General Thembisile Patekile has applauded the actions of the members and also thanked the community on reporting suspicious movements in their neighbourhoods. “Communities must be alert to strange movements and activities going on in the areas. Drug lords and traffickers usually ply their trade from residential areas. We will continue to enforce our authority on these criminals and we will not tolerate their illegal activities in our policing precinct,” added Maj Gen Patekile.
