2015-09-01 06:00

While on routine patrol, police arrested a 25-year-old man found in possession of drugs in Beacon Valley.

On Monday last week at 14:00 the Mitchell’s Plain police were on patrol when they received a tip-off that men were selling drugs on a field on the corner of Metropolitan Street and Riley Way, says spokesperson Constable Zandile Marashula.

“The officers followed up on the information and went to the scene.

“When police arrived a suspect threw a white bag over the bushes. Officers retrieved the bag and opened it in front of him,” she says.

In the bag, officers found a 9mm Berretta pistol with ammunition.

They also found 82 clear straws containing heroin, eight mandrax tables and seven dagga stoppe.

The man was arrested on charges of possession of a prohibited firearm and drugs.

The man has already appeared in court on related charges
