      and this is news? OMG, this is but a fraction of a fraction of what's going on in the area - But I suppose the SAPS have to be seen to be "fighting crime" It's common knowledge that most of the Cops are on the weekly wage bill of the big dealers which is why you'll never hear of a Major Dealer being bust.
