Cape Town - Three people were arrested in Macassar, in Cape Town, for possession of drugs with an estimated street value of about R600 000, the city's metro police said on Thursday.

The arrests came after metro police and police raided a house in Charlie Brown street on Wednesday evening, spokesperson Yolanda Faro said.

She said dagga was found in 418 parcels, 66 bags, a bin and five newspaper bundles. Also found was a Mandrax tablet and a small packet of tik.

Faro said the bust followed the arrest of a neighbour two weeks ago, also for dagga.
