Drugs and weapons confiscated in routine roadblock

Two firearms and two bags of Crystal Meth have been found and confiscated following a special ops stop and search in Edenvale this morning.

Renee Basson, Community Development Manager for Fidelity ADT says Fidelity’s Specialised Response Unit joined forces with Edenvale SAPS and JMPD for the stop and search roadblock.  A taxi travelling from Tembisa to Johannesburg with passengers was stopped and subsequently searched.  A female suspect was found with the two firearms and two bags of Crystal Meth. She was immediately apprehended and arrested by the Edenvale SAPS.   Five further arrests of illegal immigrants without documents were also made.

“This is a real coup. We all have a zero tolerance towards illegal drugs and weapons which can so easily find themselves into our community and into the hands of our young people. I hope this sends out a clear message that there will be harsh consequences for these carriers,” concludes Basson.
