Durban – Two men have been arrested in possession of large amounts of heroin, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Tuesday.

The men, aged 20 and 37, were nabbed in Phoenix, north of Durban, with 240 heroin capsules valued at R5 800, police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane said.

He said the men also had R6 480 in cash on them, that was believed to have been acquired through illegal activities.

"Police had gathered intelligence with regards to some houses in the area, which were suspected to be used as drug dens. Raids were conducted on the identified houses, which resulted in two suspects being arrested.”

KwaZulu-Natal acting provincial commissioner, Major General Bheki Langa, praised the police officers involved in the operation.

"Our police officers will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that those who are dealing or using drugs in the province are brought to book."

He further encouraged communities to "continue exposing those involved in drug dealing".
