Drug busts in the city

The Windhoek City Police have been working hard to keep drugs from being distributed in the city and have set up various operations to bust drug dealers.

Members of the City Police last week arrested four suspects found with drugs and possible drug-money. According to City Police spokesperson, Edmund Khoaseb, they found the suspects in a silver VW Polo vehicle without registration plates in Windhoek West.

“We call upon the public to report any suspicious vehicles, especially those without number plates, to the police immediately,” Khoaseb said.

The Namibian Police have also made multiple drug busts around the country. A teenager from Rehoboth was recently busted after they found she may be an alleged drug dealer.

In other crime news, a 15-year old boy was arrested by the City Police last week after allegedly breaking into a house in Robert Mugabe Avenue near Maerua Mall. The suspect allegedly smashed a bedroom window with a rock to gain access to the house. He allegedly stole clothes, a bag and blankets. The City Police arrested him, but two other suspects managed to run away.

The stolen property was recovered by the police. Khoaseb said the suspects are part of a group of street kids loitering and begging for money around the SPCA and Maerua Mall.

“Our call again is that we should stop giving money to kids begging at street corners, because this only encourages them to remain in the streets. We should rather support NGOs and government programmes aimed at getting street kids off the streets and giving them an education,” Khoaseb said.
