Johannesburg - Three students from the King Hintsa Further Training College in Butterworth were arrested on Saturday morning for the possession of drugs, Eastern Cape police said.

"The trio, aged 24, and two others, aged 23-years-old, were found with three mandrax tablets and three zolls of dagga," said spokesperson Captain Jackson Manatha.

Manatha said police received intelligence that the three, living at the Theko Vocational Campus, were using drugs and arrested them at 2.15am on Saturday.

They will appear in the Centane Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    Really? This makes news? 3 people, 3 zolls and a Mandrax Pill (1 pill are you kidding me) When a senior woman gets tortured with an iron? Another gets raped, kids going missing or being used in human trafficking, and the cops and the media make a big thing of THIS!!!
