Two men are expected to appear in court on Friday after they were busted by King Williams Town  on Wednesday on unrelated charges of drug possession and burglary at SAPS offices.

"K9 Unit members stopped and searched a 25-year-old male in the King Williams Town CBD and found 30 mandrax tablets in his possession and an undisclosed amount of cash," said police spokesperson, Captain Siphokazi Mawisa.

"The suspect was immediately arrested and charged for possession of drugs."

She said that in a separate incident, King Williams Town Task Team arrested a 35-year-old male at Buffalo Road on Wednesday night for robbery.

"The arrest comes after police followed information they received about the male that was involved in a burglary that occurred beginning of this month," Captain Mawisa.

"They recovered computers that were stolen at SAPS Employee Health and Wellness offices at Schornville, outside King Williams Town. 

"He was found in possession of the other computer and police proceeded to Schornville in a house that kept the other computer. The suspect was arrested and charged for Business Burglary."

Both suspects will appear at King Williams Town Court on Friday.
