Following information of illegal activities taking place in the informal settlement on Pine road, Woodstock police conducted a search. The information was verified and police were able to obtain permission to corner off the road.

“Legal authorisation to execute the information obtained after police received information of wanted criminals that use this informal settlement as a hide out. It has been alleged that these criminals also use the premises for illegal drug trafficking,” said Woodstock Police Department’s Sergeant Hilton Malila.

Malila said that eight suspects were arrested. Seven of them were arrested on outstanding warrants of arrest, while the eighth suspect was arrested for being in position of marijuana.

“The eight suspects who were arrested are currently in police custody. They will all appear in the Cape Town Magistrates Court on Monday,” he said.
