Poachers leave cops high and dry

Poachers leave cops high and dry

Hout Bay police Captain Rian Bester (left) went to the scene after being tipped off that abalone poachers were diving off Llandudno, but he was unable to go after them as the police station does not have a boat. He phoned the SAPS Water Wing, but it arrived too late. Police divers were unable to find the abalone, believed to have been stashed under water.

Police say abalone poaching around Hout Bay and Llandudno is becoming “worse than Hawston and Onrus” with organised gangs paying their “lookouts” up to R500 for a single cellphone call tipping them off about approaching law enforcement officers.

Lawlessness needs Law Enforcement!

Lawlessness needs Law Enforcement!

Following on from the previous entry, on Friday 29 October, vandals moved along two streets in Beach estate and systematically damaged a number of cars. My car was one of them,  which was a nasty surprise, having had all my wheels stolen off my car 2 weeks ago.

Both incidents required the criminals to spend an extended amount of time, carrying out the separate crimes. I am now questioning the efficacy of both the local law enforcement and the private security firm I employ to “keep us safe”. Adding salt to the wound, the police officer who took my statement, questioned whether I had any enemies who would do this, before any investigation had been done or had checked that other cars in my road had been affected as well. While being totally innocent, I was made to feel that I was part of the reason why my car had been damaged.

The police must be held accountable for the lack of service in fighting crime in Hout Bay, they need to step up their game and fight crime with an iron fist!

Poachers, officials face off

Report by By Helen Bamford/iol.co.za:

Hout Bay harbour was the scene of a “mini-war” this weekend when armed poachers fired on Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) wardens escorting them to shore and a crowd of more than 100 Hangberg residents hurled rocks and intimidated police officers who had been called as backup.
