metrorail thumb medium90 92EWN reports that the number of people currently behind bars or awaiting trial for Metrorail-related crimes in Cape Town now exceeds a hundred.  Metrorail believes it is slowly but surely starting to win the war against criminals.  

Last week alone, 11 suspects were arrested for cable theft and trespassing.  In the same week, three people were found guilty and sentenced in the Bishop Lavis Magistrate’s Court for crimes committed along the city's train network.  Metrorail's Riana Scott said:  “We thank communities and individuals who assist us in our fight against crime by giving us information and we want to encourage them to continue doing that.  It’s wonderful to see that vigilant and civil-minded community can positively contribute in fighting crime in our neighbourhood.”
