Two people were arrested in Woodstock last week after they sold mandrax to undercover police officers.

The two, aged 33 and 69 years, were arrested for dealing in drugs, illegally selling alcohol and the possession of suspected stolen property on Tuesday evening.

They sold the mandrax from a house in Argyle Street.

Constable Lorencial Johnson, cluster task team spokesperson, says: “As the deal was concluded, the officers swooped in on the premises and confiscated mandrax tablets with a street value of R850.

“A full search of the house led to the discovery of cellphones, tablets and music speakers. Jewellery was also confiscated as a clear answer could not be given as to where and how any of the items were obtained.”

He says the house is known for the illegal sale of alcohol. Five crates of beer were also confiscated.
