WESTERN CAPE � Serious and violent crimes are high on the priority list of the Western Cape police and every endeavour is made to ensure the safety of the community in this province. In the Blue Downs Cluster crime operations during the week have resulted in the arrest of 114 suspects on various charges and the seizure of nine unlicensed firearms and ammunition.

Search operations were conducted in areas such as Mfuleni, Eerste River, Ravensmead and Belhar since 2019-06-04 to disarm criminals to curb the violence on our streets.

During our operations in Mfuleni 146 640 litres of alcohol of liquor was confiscated where two suspects were arrested for trading in liquor without a license.

Our operations are aimed at gun violence in the province and criminals who are yet to be arrested will soon start to feel the heat.
