Police in East London on Wednesday arrested a 36-year-old man for dealing in drugs in Southernwood, East London.

According to the police, officers were patrolling the East London CBD when they noticed a suspicious vehicle going down Oxford Street.

“They stopped the vehicle, upon searching it two packets of tik and some cash were seized,” said police spokesperson, Captain Nkosikho Mzuku.

He added that the 36-year-old man was arrested and taken back to his residence to verify his address.

“In his residence police made another recovery of three packets of tik and large amount of cash,” said Captain Mzuku, adding that police are slowly, but surely taking drugs off the streets.

The suspect will appear in the East London Magistrates’ Court, once he has been charged for dealing in drugs.
