A 25-YEAR-OLD man, was arrested at about 11pm last week Thursday when he was found in possession of cocaine with an estimated street value of R100 000.

Justin Geyser (25) appeared in the Magristate’s Court on Friday on drug possesion charges. He was due to appear in court again yesterday for a formal bail application. At time of going print no details on the court appearance was available.

Geyser was arrested after drugs that were hidden in headache powder and cereal boxes had been found in his possession.

According to police spokesperson, Col Priscilla Naidu, Mount Road Police members were patrolling in Newton Park when they noticed a man running towards Westview Road.

Warrant Officer Werner Maree and Constable Kim Sauls stopped the man and questioned him.

Upon searching him, they found a sealed cereal box in his back pack.

They then found 12 headache powder boxes, each containing 38 sachets, in the cereal box.

The K9 narcotics dog, Charlie, was called in to identify the contents to which he immediately reacted. The powder was then identified as cocaine.

The acting Cluster Commander for Mount Road Cluster, Brig Keith Meyer, has commended the two officers for their quick thinking and initiative.

“Drugs and substance abuse contributes largely to the commission of various crimes, including serious and violent crimes. Therefore, we will intensify our efforts in ensuring that drug pedlars will not make our areas a haven for their illegal trade,” he said.
