Western Cape Police Commissioner Arno Lamoer said that the billions of Rands worth of drugs seized in the province has not made a major dent in crime.

Lamoer briefed Parliament on Wednesday that R12billion worth of drugs were seized over the last 22 months.

The Commissioner believes that some troubling provincial crime statistics may be drug-related.

Police linked gang fights and other violent crimes to the Western Cape’s drug trade.

Lamoer further said that although they have stopped kilos of cocaine and other drugs from flowing into the province but drugs smuggling has not stopped.
