Woodstock police confiscated several parcels of dagga and mandrax at a property in Wright Street on Tuesday (31 January).

Police spokesperson, Sergeant Hilton Malila, says as part of their plan to target drug dealers in the area, they swooped in on the property and discovered 26 parcels of dagga and more than 200 mandrax tablets in abandoned shacks.

“This definitely puts a dent in the drug trade of Woodstock,” says station commander Colonel Dumizweni Ntsezo.

This follows weekend raids which resulted in 22 arrests for drug dealing. Malila says during these raids, officers confiscated eight plastic bags of tik, five dagga parcels, 47 mandrax tablets and four dagga trees.
