On Sunday evening the Helderberg basin was in total darkness due to load shedding. Strand CID public safety officers were on crime prevention foot patrols in Beach Road Strand near KFC, when a young suspect started running away from them for no apparent reason.

The CID Public safety officers chased after him and managed to catch him. They questioned him and found 5 small plastic bags containing what is suspected to be crystal meth in his possession. Secure Rite Armed Response came out to assist and Strand SAPS was called to the scene.

He was arrested and taken away. Well done guys, we are proud of you!
