In the biggest drugs bust so far this year, drugs with a street value of about R75 million were seized in Kempton Park, on the East Rand.

A Nigerian man and a Tanzanian man were found with 20kg of heroin, 15kg of cocaine, and 15kg of tik during a police operation today.

“This is the biggest drug raid we have netted so far this year in terms of value. The men were closely monitored by crime intelligence officers for the past few months,” said Captain Paul Ramaloko.

They were expected to appear soon in the Kempton Park Magistrates’ Court, he said.
