The rail enforcement unit in Cape Town has arrested three people this week for various offences, including of suspected stolen property. The arrests were made in Pinelands, Bishop Lavis and the Cape Town central business distric . PRASA Protection Services and private security contractors also arrested four suspects in terms of the Criminal Matters Amendment Act which provides for stricter bail conditions and harsher sentences for those caught and convicted for destruction of essential infrastructure. Twenty nine suspects appeared in court over the past week and bail was successfully opposed in all cases. PRASA also dismantled 14 illegal structures within the rail reserve, all in the section between Tygerberg and Parow, and in Cape Town. The 31 occupants were also removed. Metrorail has appealed to members of the public and commuters to continue reporting incidents of crime on trains. Metrorail’s Riana Scott says commuters are increasingly being targeted and robbed by criminals, whether in taxis, on buses or trains. She says this is why the collaboration between various law enforcement agencies have turned out to be essential. “Commuter reports have increased the use of dangerous drugs have also surface, often in full view of travellers and in peak hours. We need commuters and members of the public continue reporting this because the information contributes to identification of trends and hot spots which are then resourced accordingly.”
