Three suspects will appear in the Kathu and Olifantshoek Magistrates’ Court in the Northern Cape on Wednesday, respectively, on drug trafficking charges.
They were arrested on Tuesday after members of the local crime intelligence and police dog unit found drugs at two different houses in Skerpdraai Street in Olifantshoek during a search and seizure operation.
In one house, police found Mandrax tablets worth R255 at one of the suspects. At the second home, police found the other two suspects and seized 144 small plastic bags full of marijuana as well as 13 Mandrax tablets. This fund has a total value of R54 000.
Major-General. Johan Bean, commander of the police group in the John Taolo Gaetsewe District Municipality, praised the police for the arrests.
“We must continue to curb drug trafficking in our society by arresting those who deal with drugs,” Bean said.
