Philip Bam, spokesperson, Grassy Park Community Police Forum
The Grassy Park Community Police Forum (CPF) wishes to compliment the Grassy Park police for arresting one of the big drug dealers in Parkwood Estate.
We believe that this arrest will make a huge dent in the drug trade in a very traumatised community who daily experienced the horrible impact of drugs and gangsterism.
A sizeable amount of drugs were found in possession of the dealer as he was about to deliver it. Cash and a firearm and ammunition were also confiscated. This arrest came about as police acted on information from the community.
The CPF has continually been calling for the arrest of the big dealers and this is the start of more action against dealers who cause havoc among the community and play with the minds of our children.
The CPF will oppose bail on behalf of the community. The CPF wishes to encourage our community to pass on information they have about drug dealing to the CPF who will ensure that it is not compromised.
The message is clear to gangsters and drug dealers that there is no place to hide. There are honest police people at SAPS Grassy Park who will not be bought and who want to help the community. We congratulate the team who executed the arrest.
