The Hawks’ Narcotics Enforcement Bureau Unit (SANEB) arrested a 31-year-old Cape Town law enforcement official on Tuesday evening in Bellville South, for possession of illegal narcotics.

"Members acted on a tipoff and descended at the official’s residential address along Inspan Road.  

"A search and seizure operation in the premises resulted in the discovery of over forty thousand Mandrax tablets valued at just under R2 million that were hidden in the suspect’s vehicle," described police spokesperson, Captain Lloyd Ramovha.

"The suspect is expected to appear before the Bellville Magistrates’ Court on Thursday."
