Three women aged between 21, 26 and 48 have been arrested on charges of possession of drugs in Lotus River on Friday afternoon.

Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith says the police received information at about 12:20 relating to drugs being kept at a house in Reindeer Street.

“Upon arrival at the scene members entered the residence and found three women in a bedrom on the premises. They found a large amount of crystal meth (tik) being packed in smaller packets. A sealer and empty packets were found,” says Kleinsmith.

Initially the drugs found were estimated to be worth R3m in street value.

Upon further investigation police also recovered 10 400 units of heroin and an undisclosed amount of cash as well as more tik. The total estimated street value amounted to around R6m.

The women will appear on drug related charges in the Wynberg Court
