Two men were arrested in Bez Valley, central Johannesburg, for being in possession of 40 kilograms of epherdine - a chemical used to make cocaine.

"The two men were arrested at a bed and breakfast in Bezuidenhout Valley," said Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar.

"With that amount of ephedrine you can make cocaine with a street value of approximately R5 million."

The two men, in their 30s and Congolese nationals, were arrested around noon following a tip-off.

They were expected to appear in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court on charges of drug possession and dealing in drugs.
