Metro police make several arrests

The City of Cape Town’s Metro police arrested several suspects for a range of different offences in the past three months.

The offences include possession of illegal firearms, imitation firearms, dangerous weapons, and possession of drugs and ammunition.

The officers work with the South African Police Services, Neighbourhood Watches and Community Policing Forums.

The city’s JP Smith says residents should work together with the enforcement by making personal decisions which will benefit the community as a collective.

“In the past week alone, during general enforcement patrols, metro police officers arrested 47 suspects, including three for driving under the influence. Other arrests included contact, property, commercial, drug and firearm-related offences. Officers also issued 3 796 fines,” the City reported.
