“We, as police, believe that substance abuse leads to domestic violence, murders and unnecessary assaults and robberies,” said Sgt Styles Maome, communications officer for the Primrose police.

All the suspects appeared in the Germiston Magistrate’s Court, where some had their cases postponed while others paid admission of guilt fines before being released.
