TWO people have been arrested in Edendale and Dambuza for the possession of Mandrax.

On Monday, police from the Plessislaer crime prevention unit arrested a man in Edendale who was found with five Mandrax tablets with a street value of R400, said police spokesperson Lieutenant Joey Jeevan.

Yesterday, while they were patrolling in Dambuza, they noticed a suspicious car parked at the side of the road with two men inside.

“Members searched the vehicle and one of the men was found in possession of 89 Mandrax tablets in his pocket. He was arrested,” Jeevan said.

The street value of the tablets found is R7 400.

She said both suspects were expected to appear in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court soon.

She added that the suspects were not linked.
