A male suspect found in possession of tranquilizers was on Sunday, August 5 arrested by the EMPD Drug Enforcement Unit.

According to Kobeli Mokheseng, EMPD media liaison officer, the man was relaxing at his place of residence when the officer pounced just after 11am.

“Acting on information from a reliable source, the suspect was under 48 hours surveillance, before the EMPD Drug Enforcement Unit members stormed in a building, on Hase street in Reiger Park,” said Mokheseng.

“Officers found R655 cash, 90 packets of dagga weighing 317 grams to the value of R900 and 37 Mandrax tablets (half and full), to the value of R3570 in the streets.”
