A 33 year-old man is expected in court on Thursday after he was busted by Despatch police on Wednesday for alleged possession of tik and dagga.

According to the police, they received information about a man dealing in drugs and officers quickly obtained a search warrant before heading to the suspect's house in Lamour Street.

“Members confiscated 17 small packets of tik and 26 packets of dagga with the estimated street value of R1 700,” said police spokesperson, Captain Gerda Swart.

The suspect is expected to appear before the Uitenhage Magistrate's Court on Thursday, facing charges of possession of drugs.
