Three suspects are expected in court soon after they were busted by Aliwal North police in possession of drugs.

"On Monday, between 14:45 and 22:00, members of the Aliwal North K9 Unit, together with Crime Intelligence, were busy with an intelligence driven operation and followed up positive information at Springs," described police spokesperson, Captain Ursula Roelofse.

"A 23-year-old suspect was arrested with Cat and Tik to the value of R4290 and a 27-year-old suspect was arrested with Tik and crushed Mandrax to the value of R75.

"Still eager to address the root causes of crime, K9 members also made an arrest for possession of dagga at Lady Grey Kwezinaledi on Tuesday morning."

Captain Roelofse said that this is all in line with our Back to Basics priority to have focused utilization of resources and enhanced police visibility.

The Aliwal North Cluster Commander, Brig Xakavu, thanked the members for their efforts to take the drugs off our streets.
