Gauteng Organised Crime Narcotics Unit and other law enforcement agencies conducted a joint operation last night, 9 October 2018, at Westbury to execute a warrant of arrest on a wanted suspect. They were tracing the suspect who absconded bail while he was appearing in court for possession of drugs in December 2017.

Police followed the information and went to Radiokop in Honeydew. Upon arrival members found that the suspect had gone out and waited for him. After surveillance on the address, the said suspect arrived and he was pointed out as he arrived at the gate.

With the help of information from the members of Westbury community, he was arrested and his correct name verified. He will appear at the Sophiatown Magistrate Court soon.
