WESTERN CAPE – A 36-year-old suspect is expected to appear in the Wynberg Magistrate on Tuesday, 22 March 2022 for a charge of dealing in drugs after a high speed chase that ended in a crash yesterday, 17 March 2022.

It is alleged that the Hawks' South African Narcotics Enforcement Bureau (SANEB) team in Cape Town together with Crime Intelligence Counter Narcotics tried to pull him over yesterday, after they reacted on information about a vehicle that was transporting mandrax tablets.

Police report that the suspect took off resulting in a chase that ended in the Tokai area near Cape Town with a two vehicle crash shortly after 15:45.  The vehicle was then searched and approximately 82 000 mandrax tablets were found in the boot of the vehicle with an estimated street value of more than R3.2 million.
