Two suspects have been nabbed after police caught them with drugs.

Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith says one of the suspects was apprehended on Tuesday 31 May at 11:00.

“Grassy Park police were busy with an operation when they received information of drug dealing in Moosa Walk in Parkwood. When they arrived at the premises, in one of the rooms they found three grocery bags containing dagga, 24 dagga cigarettes and 27 stoppe of dagga,” she says.

Kleinsmith says the drugs were estimated to have a street value of R1000.

An 18-year-old man was arrested on charges of dealing and possession of dagga.

“At the same time other officers were in Ottery flats doing house searches. They noticed a suspicious looking teenager who, when he saw the police, started running.

“Officers pursued the (teenager), who ran into Frank Court where he lives,” Kleinsmith says.

She says the evasive suspect was seen throwing something in the bin, and when police took it out they found that it was a plastic bag containing 220 units of tik with an estimated street value of R22 000.

The 17-year-old suspect was arrested on charges of dealing, or alternatively of being in possession of drugs.

Both suspects appeared in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court.
