Seven suspect arrested in East London

EASTERN CAPE – Five females and two males were arrested last night after they were found in possession of dagga and a shot gun.

East London K9 spotted a suspicious Toyota Hilux bakkie in Buffalo Street East London and they stopped it with the assistance of East London Crime Centre, Crime Prevention and SANDF members. Upon searching the vehicle a shot gun and undisclosed amount of money was found at the back seat and the vehicle was smelling of dagga.

Two male suspects were in the car and informed the police that they came from Lusikisiki to fetch a furniture for someone.

They questioned them about the money and the smelling of dagga and apparently all the information that they gave led the members to Bryaelyn and Duncan Village where they arrested five females from different shacks.

The vehicle that was utilized to commit crime has been booked to camp 13 for further investigation. A variety of drugs were confiscated.

All suspects are between the ages of 29 and 45 years and will appear before East London Magistrates’ court on,  July 15 for different charges of possession of unlicensed firearm, possession of dagga and dealing in dagga.
