2011-10-10 00:00

TWO people, including a juvenile, will again appear in the Ramsgate Magistrate’s Court today for bail applications after they were arrested and charged for possession of drugs.

The Port Shepstone Organised Crime Unit arrested Travors Gey van Pittius (26) and a 17-year-old at a house in Margate on Wednesday. They confiscated 1 506 Mandrax tablets and a quantity of loose dagga with an estimated street value of R90 000.

Last week the two briefly appeared at the Ramsgate Magistrate’s Court where they were charged and remanded in custody.

“Drugs destroy and ruin lives and are a major threat to our youth. We will do everything within our power to rid our streets of this scourge”, said Lieutenant-Colonel Campbell Nyuswa, commander of the Port Shepstone organised crime unit.
