Drugs remain a community concern – February results

Posted on 22/03/2019

February saw nearly 180 calls made to Crime Stoppers SA about drug growing, making and selling activity – reinforcing that the destructive impact of drugs remains a real concern for people in the community.

In addition, 43 calls were about firearms, providing investigators with good leads to follow and resulting in three firearms being located along with an array of other illegal weapons.

People helped to identify a man and woman wanted in relation to a theft in Nuriootpa, and provided valuable information about serious criminal trespass incidents at Surrey Downs, Bellevue Heights, two Wells and Lewiston, a Para Hills chemist robbery, assaults in the city  and a robbery at the Gepps Cross Drive In.

Information from the community led to 50 apprehensions during February, including 23 men and 6 women charged with a range of serious offences.

Our weekly crime segments on 9News Adelaide during the month asked for help to solve an aggravated indecent assault at Paralowie, a robbery of a female jogger at Freemont Park at Elizabeth, and a break in at a Fitzroy property where credit cards were stolen and later used. We also partnered with SA Police to encourage people to be safe during ‘Mad March’ celebrations.
