Drugs worth over half a million rand seized in Cape Town


Media Statement from Directorate of Priority Crimes Investigation (HAWKS)
South African Police Service

WESTERN CAPE – Seven suspects aged between 20 and 60 have been arrested following a joint operation by the Hawks’ Narcotics Enforcement Bureau (SANEB), Crime Intelligence and Flying Squad after dagga and Mandrax tablets valued at over half a million rand were discovered.

The Hawks’ led multidisciplinary team descended at a house in Tafelsig, Mitchells Plain and uncovered the narcotics that were apparently buried under ground in a trunk within the parking-lot area.

Additional drugs and an undisclosed amount of money were also found in a safe which was concealed by a painting on the wall.

The group is expected to appear at the Mitchells Plain Magistrate’s Court on Monday to face charges
