|After significant amounts of operational planning, CAP together with Sandton SAPS, Johannesburg Health Department, JMPD and City of Joburg orchestrated an operation at a private property known in the area for the housing of illegal squatters and suspicious activity.
The operation, which started on Monday, confirmed that the premises was being used by squatters as a place of shelter. Many structures were erected on the property and peoples’ belongings found. Substantial amounts of dagga as well as other illegal substances were found on the grounds. These substances, believed to weigh over 10kg’s, were subsequently confiscated by the relevant officials.
A guard hut has been erected on the premises to house a full time guard who will prevent trespassing.
With the involvement and co-operation of the property owner, plans have been made to clear out the grounds and build a perimeter wall around the property to secure it from illegal squatters. Flood lights have been put up to ensure the property is well illuminated and together with the JRA, the illegal bridge on the property will be demolished.
We would like to thank all officials involved in this operation and for their commitment to making the suburb of Bryanston safer for all those we reside in it.
