A 36-year-old man is expected in court on Thursday after he was arrested by Port Elizabeth police on Wednesday night for dealing in mandrax in Govan Mbeki locality in Kwadwesi.

"This follows after the Motherwell Operational Command Centre received information of the drugs at a house in the area," police said.
