Durban - Two people were arrested in Sydenham near Durban for dealing in drugs, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Thursday.

Captain Thulani Zwane said 1 000 mandrax tablets with an estimated street value of R60 000 was found in their possession on Wednesday.

He said a KwaDukuza police cluster task team received information concerning drugs in the Sydenham area and conducted observations.

"At approximately 16:00 they conducted an operation and spotted two vehicles fitting the same description given to them."

He said officers noticed the occupant of a BMW handing over a suspicious parcel to the occupant of a bakkie.

"The members immediately swooped in and searched the two vehicles. A plastic [bag] containing 1 000 mandrax tablets was found and the two occupants were arrested."

The two were expected to appear in the Durban Magistrate's Court later on Thursday.
