Johannesburg - Five people were arrested on Friday after drugs worth about R500 000 were found at a home in Bryanston, Johannesburg, police said.

Police seized diamorphine (heroin), methcathinone (Cat) and chemical substances used to manufacture these drugs following a tip-off, said Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini.

"Police were patrolling in the Randburg area when they received information that illegal activities were taking place at the identified house," he said.

Four men and a woman, aged between 40 and 45, were among those arrested in the raid.

They were expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.
