Johannesburg - Two men and a woman have been arrested in Cape Town for possession of drugs worth about R100 000 on the street, Western Cape police said on Wednesday.

"The arrests follow after members executed stop-and-search patrols. When they searched a 39-year-old suspect they found four medium size plastic bags filled with dagga," said police spokesperson Frederick van Wyk.

Police then followed up information at a house in Lytton Street, Observatory.

"They confiscated four plastic bags, three medium size plastic shopping bags, 32 plastic bank bags, all filled with dagga, and 85 white in colour tablets, which are used for the manufacturing of Mandrax tablets," said Van Wyk.

A 21-year-old man and a 61-year-old woman were arrested at a house in Cornwall Street, Woodstock, after they were found in possession of 20 Mandrax tablets with an estimated street value of R70 000.

Van Wyk said they would all appear in the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Thursday.
