Drug dealer sentenced to six years

2016-07-28 06:00

THE SAPS welcomed the sentence meted out to a convicted drug dealer last week and hope it will deter others from dealing in drugs.
Nkosinathi Emmanuel Myende (34) appeared in the Scottburgh Magistrate’s Court on Friday, 22 July where he was convicted of dealing in drugs and sentenced to six years imprisonment, half of which was suspended for five years.

Warrant Officer Deena Govender of the Scottburgh SAPS followed up on information received and pounced on Myende at the Scottburgh taxi rank in October last year.
Govender searched him and recovered a plastic packet with 24 straws of heroin. Myende was arrested and detained and the straws of heroin seized as exhibits.

The Scottburgh SAPS Station Commander, Lieutenant- Colonel Praga Naicker, commended Warrant Officer Deena Govender for the arrest and subsequent conviction and sentencing of the drug dealer.
“Our members work tirelessly to rid our communities of drugs. Numerous drug-related arrests were effected recently and I urge them to intensify their efforts to keep our streets free of drugs,” said Naicker.
