Johannesburg - Two people were arrested for possession of tik with an estimated street value of R3 000, Western Cape police said on Saturday.

The arrests were made during a 12-hour raid, Captain Frederick Van Wyk said. A total of 10 people were arrested.

The operation focused on gangs, organised crime, crimes against women and children, and drug and alcohol abuse, he said.

Police seized one unlicensed firearm and 54 rounds of ammunition. The tik, dagga and mandrax confiscated had a street value of R7 610.

The suspects were due to appear in different courts in Cape Town on Monday.

    Congratulations, but only R3,000,and that makes headlines (the other day, Italian police seized Euro 300 Mio, one subject, having alleged links to the Mafia)? Surely, the police could do better and by arresting 10 people obtain more drugs and money?

    Drug Dealers should be fed their drugs - all at once and vast volumes of it. They deserve to die from the trash they are killing our children and loved ones with.
