Joint operation yields results

Fourteen arrested on drug charges.

A recent joint operation between the Primrose SAPS, the SAPS K9 Unit and the Gauteng Flying Squad yielded 14 arrests.

The operation took place in the Primrose policing area, on November 8.

The police were searching for drugs and the majority of the arrests were for possession of dagga, while four were for other narcotic substances.

The people arrested ranged in age from 20 to 40 years.

SAPS deputy provincial commissioner Lieut-Gen Phumudzo Gela sent extra manpower to Primrose to help get rid of drugs in the area.

“Operations like these will be conducted on a regular basis until the area is free of drugs,” said Const Styles Maome, communications officer for the Primrose police.

Some of the people arrested paid admission of guilt fines, while others appeared in the Germiston Magistrates Court and their cases were postponed for various reasons.
