TWO women and a man were arrested in Imbali in Piet­ermaritzburg this past weekend with a huge stash of various drugs with a street value of over R340 000.

The three, aged from 29 to 33, are expected to appear in court today. They were nabbed by the Plessislaer Crime Prevention Unit on Saturday morning.

Police spokesperson Captain Musa Ntombela said they received a tip-off that a house in Imbali was being used as a drug den. A team from their crime prevention unit was deployed to the house.

He said when the police arrived, the suspects tried to hide the drugs in a wardrobe.

“They found two women and one man who were busy packaging the drugs — whoonga, mandrax and heroin — with a total street value of R346 700.”

“This is the biggest consignment of drugs that we have intercepted in this area,” he said.
