Police nab duo selling drugs in Heideveld

2016-05-24 06:00

Police have arrested two men on Friday 13 May for the possession of drugs.

The men, aged 46 and 40, were arrested after police followed up on information which was given to them from residents in Jonkershoek Road in Heideveld.

Lieutenant Ian Bennett confirmed that the address is known as drug outlet in the community.

People’s Post reported last week (“‘Drug dens’ weeded out”, 17 May) that the City of Cape Town, with the help of police, evicted tenants of council-owned rental stock who were found to be dealing in drugs in the Heideveld and Manenberg area.

Bennett confirmed that upon searching the premises, they found 188 mandrax tablets and 53 units of unga (a heroin-based drug), 20 units of tik as well as a packet of uncut heroine which was hidden in a false compartment in the freezer.

A case of possession of drugs has been opened for investigation.

Both suspects are out on bail for similar offences and will be appearing in court for a formal bail hearing.

V Anyone with information regarding any illegal drugs, firearms and ammunition or stolen goods can contact Manenberg Police Station on 021 699 9400 or CrimeStop 0860 010 111.
