There is a coordinated strategy to rid South Africa of drugs and illegal arms.
The Anti-Gang Unit (AGU) has arrested a married couple in Elsies River for the illegal possession of a firearm, ammunition, drugs and alleged stolen property. Police spokesperson, Andre Traut, says the unit followed up information last night about possible gang related activities at a residence in Grand Vue Avenue and conducted a search operation. Traut says it’s suspected that the residence is a storage facility for a local gang in the area. He says the AGU seized a pistol, ammunition, 450 mandrax tablets, three laptops, 11 cell phones and cash.
