The Western Cape Police arrested 164 suspects in the past week for various crimes including drug and firearm possession, during a Crime Prevention Operation in Mitchell’s Plain, Lentegeur and Strandfontein.  Captain FC van Wyk said 27 houses were searched for drugs whereby 117 suspects were arrested. 

Police also recovered six illegal firearms and six stolen vehicles.  Van Wyk said 15 perpetrators were arrested for crimes against Women and Children.

Van Wyk added that on Friday 9 May Mitchells Plain police members patrolled Eastridge where community members informed them of an armed male robbing people in the nearby vicinity. While the police were collecting the information, the public pointed out three of the now arrested suspects.  

“Two of the suspects fled while one suspect fired shots at the police members, when the suspect attempted to flee the police exchanged fire  and apprehended the 20 year old suspect for the possession of an illegal firearm and ammunition” said Van Wyk
