The crime combatting operations focusing on dangerous weapons, last night, especially focused on the Conville policing precinct near George which has lately been notorious for acts of violent crimes during weekends which are not necessarily reported to the authorities. Eight suspects were arrested for small quantities of drugs, Mandrax and Tik as well as dangerous weapons such as modified knives and panga’s / machetes during a blitzkrieg in Conville precinct which saw members of the Eden Cluster Crime combatting Team being deployed in the area.
