Rabie Ridge SAPS confiscates drugs

In July Rabie Ridge SAPS conducted operations targeting drugs, a problem that is on the increase in Rabie Ridge, Kanana, Phomolong and Mayibuye.

Corporate communication officer at Rabie Ridge SAPS Captain Mofana Masela said through stop-and-search, and help from members of the community, progress has been made to trace crime suspects. In this way, said Masela, police have recovered different types of drugs in the area.

Masela said a few weeks ago, the police recovered about 15kg of different types of drugs, including nyaope, cat and dagga.

“The police are serious to address this drug problem. If more stakeholders come on board, crime will be reduced and the community can feel safe.

“Nyaope is prevalent around Rabie Ridge. We are constantly policing areas where youth may be getting it, and in particular, we have been targeting Kanana, Phomolong and Mayibuye.

“Rabie Ridge SAPS is making a request to any person or organisation who can help to provide the youth with skills, to make themselves available to engage in processes of rehabilitating them.

“This will go a long way to help young people to beat drug addiction. We are interested in people with skills in the food industry.

“There were chefs who became a blessing when they previously helped recruit a group of young people to learn the skill.

“We have had some of those visiting the US to learn to become chefs. Some are now employed in places such as Dubai.

“All those youth were adopted by the Rabie Ridge Police Station and lived in and around Rabie Ridge policing precinct.

“If these current ones can also be adopted in partnership with the chef and other service providers, that will make a great difference to reduce drugs and crime in our community.”
