Benoni Flying Squad Achievements | Kempton Express
Benoni Flying Squad (BFS) had a successful weekend October 15-17, during which several arrests were made for various crimes.
BFS spokesman WO Grant Giblin said a total of 11 suspects were arrested, with four vehicles recovered and one unlicensed firearm found.
“On October 16, members investigated information about a suspected drug dealer in possession of an unlicensed firearm that led to a residence in Ivory Park Extension Nine.
“A thorough search of the site resulted in the recovery of a 9mm pistol with a serial number on it, two magazines, 10 live ammunition and 2,300 grams of Dagga,” said Giblin.
“Members patrolling the Great North Road in Benoni at around 11:45 am on Saturday saw a white Mercedes driving recklessly. They continued to stop the vehicle and a search resulted in the discovery of 21 packets of cocaine hidden in a vehicle door panel. The suspect was immediately arrested and offered members R300 for his release. This led to an additional bribery charge. “
