Suspected East London drug dealers to apply for bail

JULY 13, 2015

Fifteen suspects arrested in one of East London's biggest-ever drug busts, in the past week, will appear in the East London Magistrate's Court for formal bail proceedings tomorrow (Tuesday). The suspects appeared briefly in the court on Friday.

The men were arrested on Wednesday, during a multi-pronged police operation, after drugs worth more than R3.5 million were seized in their possession as well as R4 million in cash. The money is believed to have come from drug operations.

A 13-year-old minor, who was arrested with the group, was released to the care of his parents and charges against him were withdrawn.
