Pietermaritzburg – An admitted Durban drug dealer's takings of R20 069 and haul of heroin, cocaine, methaqualone (Mandrax) and other drugs must be forfeited to the State, the Pietermaritzburg High Court ordered on Thursday.

The dealer, Kevin Moodley of Phoenix, had 10 previous convictions for drug offences, court documents revealed. The money seized represented proceeds of unlawful activities, Moodley said.

He was arrested.

Three police officers went to Moodley's home and found the front gate locked, and dogs guarding the home.

Nevertheless, they entered, went into the house and found Moodley counting money which was on the floor of his lounge.

The drugs included 113 straws of heroin, 70 straws of crack cocaine, methaqualone, diacetylmorphine (heroin) and dagga.

Moodley told his captors he charged R15 per heroine straw, R40 per Mandrax tablet, R40 for a small piece of crack cocaine and R100 for a bigger piece. He also had a small digital scale.
