On 6 November 2018 Law Enforcement officers in the Cape Town CBD responded to a report of a mugging that took place in Hatfield Rd Gardens. An adult female’s handbag was taken by 3 males. A local security company joined the search for the suspects and two of the 3 suspects were caught and arrested. The 3rd suspect unfortunately got away with the belongings of the victim. SAPS will investigate further. On 6 September 2018 Law Enforcement School Resource Officers were checking the grounds of a high school in Elsies River when they found a BB gun and 24 live rounds on the school property. A member of the public alerted the officers that they observed a group of known gangsters from the area drop something wrapped in newspaper inside the school property. Upon opening the parcel the officers found the air gun and rounds. No arrests were made. In Mitchell’s Plain officers fined 3 drivers(on separate occassions) of vehicles who were caught dumping builders rubble and garden refuse on Swartklip Road and Weltevreden Road. These are Hotspots for dumping. All 3 trucks were impounded and 1 truck belonged to a well known hardware store. This will be investigated further to establish if the company knew what the truck was being used for.
