PIETERMARITZBURG’S K9 unit found drugs with a street value estimated at R37 000 in a raid at the Matsheni Hall in Pietermaritzburg on Wednesday.

Officials received information about drugs at the venue and proceeded to the area and staked it out before busting in.

They then pounced on a 21-year-old female who was arrested for possession of drugs. She was found with 16 straws of heroin.

During the operation, members found 1,5 kilograms of dagga, 398 Mandrax tablets and an additional 1 011 straws of heroin abandoned in the hall.

“We urge the public members to blow the whistle about these drug dealers. This war needs us to join hands and work together,” KwaZulu-Natal police commissioner Lieutenant General Mmamonnye Ngobeni said.

She applauded the members for the arrest of the suspect and seizure of the drugs.
