CAPE TOWN – The provincial police say two men have been arrested on West Coast early this week for dealing on drugs worth R150 000.
Constable Carol Strauss, police spokesperson, say two was apprehended in the early hours of Monday 3 July.
The arrests are as a result of swift response by members from Milnerton Operation Combat who acted on information they received, the police say.
The arrests were performed shortly after 02:00.
“The information indicated that drugs are being sold in a house in Libra Road in Milnerton.
Police stopped at the house when they noticed a vehicle leaving the house with two occupants inside it.
A high speed chase ensued and police stopped the vehicle on the N7 highway. Upon searching the vehicle, various drugs such as ephedrine, tik, ecstasy tables, cocaine, and heroin with an estimated street value of R150 000 was found,” Strauss says.
The drugs were confiscated.
Strauss says the two perpetrators aged 24 and 30 years, will be appearing in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court once charged for dealing in drugs.
Substance abuse is associated with violent crime and the police aspire to provide effective, efficient and responsive policing to our communities by taking drugs off our streets,” Strauss says.
