The City of Cape Town has announced that Metro Police Officers are doing their best to clean up Cape Town’s streets, arresting 113 suspects and issuing 2475 fines during patrols and operations in the past week, reports the City of Cape Town.
Their latest victory against crime comes with the arrest of five suspects after they were caught with the illegal possession of drugs and ammunition in Lansdowne on Sunday, October 10.
After receiving a tip regarding illegal activity at premises in the area, Metro Officers along with the K9 unit searched the property and found drugs in the kitchen cupboards and ammunition hidden in the backyard and behind a dust bin.
Thanks to the incredible noses of K9s Khaos and Leia, the suspects aged between 36 and 53 were apprehended and placed into the custody of SAPS Lansdowne. The officers confiscated 59 live rounds of ammunition and 35 mandrax tablets.
However, this is not the first time the K9 Unit has been hailed as the hero. Earlier this month, the Western Cape Department of Community Safety has commended the efforts of the Swartland K9 Unit and other law enforcement agencies after a 40-year-old man was arrested at the Moorreesburg Weighbridge on the N7 on Tuesday, October 5 with 3 kg of dagga and 1005 Mandrax tablets.
