Door-to-door anti-crime campaign hits Maraganeng village

MARAGANENG – Groblersdal Cluser Community Policing Forum (CPF) together with cluster police embarked on an anti-crime door-to-door campaign in the declared crime hot-spot Maraganeng village outside Jane Furse.

Participants in the crime rooting out door-to-door campaign were divided into groups to enable them to cover the entire area in an endeavor to curb crime that continues to hit hard on residents.

Ali Ramoshaba, Groblersdal CPF Chairperson, said the campaign was aimed at addressing crime such as housebreaking, stock theft and substance abuse.

Ramoshaba further said in the recent crime overview, released by the cluster police, they saw the need to visit the area as a result of a number of crimes committed in the village.

“Residents were complaining about high rate of housebreakings in which Plasma TV sets were stolen. This is because criminals are using a substance found in the TV sets to produce drugs. The other problem faced is that of stock theft from which a number of cases were opened with the police. Residents were given safety tips on how to take care of their livestock,” said Ramoshaba.

He said the other problem facing the area was the use of drugs by young people. Ramoshaba concluded drugs were sold in the village and were believed to be a contributing factor to the high rate of crime there.
