Gauteng police in conjunction with other law enforcement agencies, embarked on a number of intelligence driven operations that resulted in the arrest of more than 1100 suspects this past weekend. Unlicensed Firearms and drugs were also seized throughout the province. Operations included roadblocks, stop and search, shebeens raiding, vehicle checking points (VCPs), vehicle patrols, foot patrols and tracing of wanted suspects.


Among those arrested is a 19-year-old man who allegedly, severely assaulted his 40-year-old biological father who later succumbed to injuries on Saturday, 21 April 2018. It is alleged that the deceased and his son had an argument at their place of residence in Krugersdorp and the son assaulted his father until he collapsed. The father was later certified dead by the paramedics. After hearing of this gruesome assault, police rushed to the scene and arrested the suspect who was subsequently charged with murder.


Police also arrested a 61-year-old man after he was found with four unlicensed Firearms and assortment of ammunition in Kempton Park over the weekend. Police acted on a tip off and on arrival at the man’s premises, they found two pistols, two rifles and live rounds. The suspect was arrested for possession of unlicensed Firearms and ammunition and will appear at Kempton Park Magistrates’ Court soon. 


Tshwane police arrested four hundred and seven suspects for offences ranging from assault, theft, malicious damage to property, possession of suspected stolen property and robberies. In Johannesburg, police arrested more than three hundred and twenty one suspects for offences that include possession of unlicensed Firearms and ammunition, fraud, theft and assault and murder.


A security guard was arrested in Ekurhuleni for plotting a business robbery in the company he works for. It is alleged that the security officers were patrolling when they were confronted by four suspects who were armed with Firearms. It is further alleged that more suspects joined in and robbed the company of 350 boxes of cigarettes, Volvo tyres and rims, 30 cellphones, laptops, screens and television sets. Thorough preliminary investigation by Police revealed that one security officer of the company colluded with the suspects and he was arrested. Police are looking for about 15 more suspects. Other suspects arrested in Ekurhuleni were arrested for crimes ranging from rape, house breaking, possession of suspected stolen vehicle, possession of dagga, driving under the influence of alcohol and assault.


Soweto police arrested one hundred and nine suspects for fraud, theft of motor vehicle, rape, illegal mining and possession of gold bearing material among others. Another one hundred and twenty suspects were arrested in Soweto for crime such as armed robbery, assault, driving while under the influence of liquor, selling liquor without licence, murder, possession of drugs, and possession of suspected stolen property.


More suspects were arrested in West Rand and Sedibeng and all arrested suspects will appear before different Magistrates’ Courts across Gauteng soon.
