A National Crime Intelligence and Tactical Response nabbed nine perpetrators in intel-driven operations this morning in Soweto. According to the report, one perpetrator was shot dead, and another was shot and wounded. It is believed that the perpetrators were conspiring to commit an armed robbery. During the operation, three vehicles were seized, three rifles and three pistols were seized.
Another armed and dangerous criminal activity thwarted by the alert crime intelligence team. Well done to the team for taking swift action. It is when the police take immediate action that the citizens of South Africa find a glimmer of hope. However with the high crime rate, the success stories are few and far between.
The media have been reporting on the success of the South African Police and the outstanding work performed. The biggest challenge is the justice system. Although the suspects are arrested, it is a guarantee that bail will be set, and they will be out on the streets of South Africa to soon.
The criminals are swift, crafty and dangerous; it is no longer a petty crime, but armed and dangerous. In this instance, a total of six weapons were confiscated, and the thought of where these criminals obtain weapons is a mystery or is it.
