The City of Cape Town’s Gang Task Force
working in the Beacon Valley conducted several
roadblocks and searches in suspected drug dens in the area.
This as gang violence in Mitchell’s Plain
has escalated in the past few weeks.
Mayoral Committee Member for Safety and Security JP Smith said police
confiscated two firearms several people were arrested for violent crimes and
murder and drugs were also confiscated during the raid.
Smith said they hope that these disrupt
policing action and executions of warrants will lead to stabilisation of the
gang situation in Beacon Valley so that residents
can resume a normal and peaceful life.
“It is important that Saps proceeds with investigations
against guilty parties because only the police have the investigative authority
to bring those guilty to book” Smith added.
