An early morning raid in Woodstock resulted in multiple arrests and drug confiscations.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Hilton Malila, says the drug raid started at 04:00 today (13 February) at a property in Wright Street.

In addition to arresting suspects for possession of stolen property and drugs, officers also arrested suspects for the illegal possession of ammunition and cultivating dagga.
This follows a major operation the weekend as officers embarked on a complete clamp down over the weekend.

Malila says in an attempt to clean up the precinct, officers recorded the lowest crime statistics over the weekend as they conducted high visibility patrols.
