Philippi-East: Operational endeavours to address drug related crime in the Philippi-East policing precinct resulted in the arrest of a suspect in Marcus Garvey yesterday afternoon (Wednesday, 13 January).

The 44-year-old man was charged for dealing in drugs after he was found in possession of 214 bank packets of marijuana and one parcel of marijuana.

He appeared in the Philippi Magistrates' Court today and was released on a warning.

Drug crime will remain a priority for SAPS Philippi-East and we will continue with our onslaught to root out the scourge.
