DECEMBER 4, 2015

Two suspects are facing a dug related charge, after they were allegedly found in possession of 28 mandrax tablets and 10 packets of tik on Friday morning.

The first suspect, 34, was arrested during a drug raid by members of the East London K-9 unit in his Nqonqweni house, in Berlin, East London. Upon searching, the narcotic dog, Max, spotted the drugs in a clock that was hanged against the wall.

Police proceeded to another house in NU-15, Mdantsane, where a 30 year-old suspect was arrested for possession of 10 packets of tik. The estimated street value of the drugs is R2 200.

The suspects are due to appear in the Mdantsane Magistrate’s Court on charges of drug dealing soon.

“This recovery was done with the assistance of the K-9 dog, Max. Police have confiscated more than 330 mandrax and tik in the past three weeks around Mdantsane cluster, Berlin included.

“We will stop at nothing, to intercept any strategy to bring drugs in Mdantsane Cluster,” said Mdantsane Cluster Commander, Major General Andre Swart.
