Johannesburg - The Hawks believe they might have cracked the biggest drug syndicate on the West Rand following the arrests of two men in Krugersdorp.

"We arrested two men, aged 68 and 29, for producing Mandrax," spokesperson Captain Paul Ramaloko said on Thursday.

The Hawks found three kilograms of Mandrax tablets and chemicals and equipment to produce the drug at the house in Boltonia, Krugersdorp, where the men were arrested.

One of the men was thought to be a well-known drug dealer from Soweto.

Ramaloko said the men would appear in the Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on Friday.
