WESTERN CAPE: Partnership policing in the Blue downs Cluster led to the arrest of three suspects for dealing in drugs and ammunition.   

On Monday 2021-03-15, Mfuleni SAPS members received information about  a white Corsa vehicle allegedly transporting drugs. Around 09:45 the mentioned vehicle was spotted on Hindle Road near a shopping centre. Mfuleni and Kleinvlei SAPS members stopped the vehicle opposite a petrol station. The vehicle with two male occupants was searched and a small packet of drugs (tik) was found on one of the persons. The 29 year old suspect was questioned and further information led the members to a house in Fountain Head Street in Nuwe Begin, where they arrested a 43 year old male for possession of mandrax tablets.

Around 12:45 more information was followed up which led  the members to a house in Lisle August Street in Belladona Estate where they found more mandrax tablets, tik and a variety of ammunition. A 30 year old female was arrested at this address. The three suspects are due to appear in the Blue Downs Magistrate’s Court as soon as they are charged for dealing in drugs and illegal possession of ammunition.
