CT specialized units targets drug houses
09 September 2012
The specialized units within the City’s Metropolitan Police Department will target hot spot drug houses and gangster areas in Cape Town this evening.
The City obtained several search warrants from the National Prosecuting Authority and Courts to be executed on suspected drug dens.
The Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security JP Smith will also form part of the operation which is being launched in order to indicate to the public that the City is serious about eradicating gangsterism and illegal selling of drugs to the community.
Smith says the drug trade has led to a number of deaths and those people involved in the selling of illegal drugs must learn that one death is one too many.
