An intelligence driven operation was executed on the 4th January 2020 in Moerasrivier where they discovered a stolen weapon and quantities of drugs.
The authorities received information and later requested a search warrant to check the property.
Hidden under the dog kennel at a house on Searle Street the authorities discovered 5 packets of cocaine, 3 mandrax tablets, 13 packets of tik and 11 rolls of dagga.
Searching the property further they later discovered a 7.65 firearm accompanied with ammunition which had been hidden in a bushy area. The firearm that was seized was flagged as stolen back in January 2019 from Kabega Park.
The operation involved members of the Anti-Gang Unit, Public Order Policing, PE K9 unit and SAPS Humansdorp.
As of right now no arrests have been made but the investigation is still open and will continue.
