Police Patrol Bellville taxi rank

By Odette Ismail

There was an increase of patrols by law enforcement officials at the Bellville taxi rank over the weekend due to recent shootings. According to the Cape Times police adopted a zero-tolerance approach in terms of taxi drivers operating without permits and those in possession of illegal firearms. Police Superintendent Elna de Beer said that last week’s taxi shooting were analysed at their last planning meeting and that statistics on various seizures would only be released later in the week. The taxis travelling between Kraaifontein and Bellville were watched closely by the SA Police Service, Metro Police and members of the Special Operations Unit. Firearms were confiscated and several taxis were impounded over the last three days. This was after roadblocks were held and search-and-seize operations were conducted at several locations.
