CPF is on the move

Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO NEWS -

A JOINT op­er­a­tion be­tween Em­pan­geni Com­mu­nity Polic­ing Fo­rum (CPF) mem­bers and SAPS re­sulted in the ar­rest of one per­son on Fri­day night.

Ac­cord­ing to Em­pan­geni CPF Chair­per­son Zonita Grobbe­laar, a va­grant was ar­rested at a va­cant home which CPF and SAPS mem­bers searched.

‘We started at about 8:15pm on Fri­day night and pa­trolled the sub­urbs be­fore go­ing to three va­cant homes which we are aware of.

‘The first two homes searched were all clear, but at the third home there was a va­grant sleep­ing in­side.

‘He tried to flee but was ap­pre­hended by mem­bers in the green­belt be­hind the home.

‘SAPS de­tained him and took him in for ques­tion­ing.’

Grobbe­laar has in the past noted that va­cant homes and build­ings in the town pro­vide a per­fect hide­out for petty crim­i­nals.

‘We have been mon­i­tor­ing a num­ber of homes in Em­pan­geni that are va­cant and do reg­u­lar searches at these premises,’ she said.

Mean­while, Em­pan­geni res­i­dents are be­ing re­minded to at­tend the monthly CPF meet­ing which will be held on Tues­day, 27 Novem­ber at the Em­pan­geni Civic Cen­tre (Sup­per Hall) at 6pm.
