A 48-year-old man was arrested in Parkwood last week after police found a variety of drugs (96 stoppe dagga, 19 whole and 40 half mandrax tablets, 12 packets of tik and a parcel of dagga), as well as an undisclosed amount of cash at his home.

Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith says police were busy with an integrated operation with other units on Thursday morning, when a member executed a search warrant in Blackbird Avenue just after 09:00.

“Members searched the premises and found 96 stoppe dagga, 19 whole and 40 half mandax tablets, 12 packets of tik and a parcel of dagga as well as an undisclosed amount of cash.

“The man was arrested on charges of dealing, alternatively possession of drugs,” Kleinsmith says.

She says the drugs found are estimated to have a street value of R3500.

Kleinsmith says later the same morning a 29-year-old foreigner was arrested”who was in possession of counterfeit CDs in Victoria Road, Grassy Park.

The man was found with 223 counterfeit CDs and he was charged with possession of counterfeit goods.

Both suspects appeared in court on Friday.
