Durban - Two men were arrested in Clairwood, Durban, for allegedly dealing and being in possession of heroin to the value of R40 000, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Saturday.

Police had gathered information that a shipping container on the corner of Sirkumani and Pine streets was reportedly used to deal drugs, said spokesperson Colonel Jay Naicker.

The two were arrested at 19:30 on Friday after being found in possession of eight straws of heroin.

Upon searching the container police found a further 1 500 straws with a street value of about R40 000 and R6 500 in cash, proceeds allegedly from drug dealing.

Naicker said the men, 23 and 25, were expected to appear in the Durban Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    Lock them up!!!

      Yes, for nlife. Start by getting rid of 200 000 illegal nigerians in SA dealing drugs. Afterwards put the scent dogs around the ANC ministers houses and families, and progress from the top downwards. These people have shown a very high percentage of criminal behaviour!

      Nah, string 'em up

      I was expecting bigger bust other than few punks... What is R40 000 in terms of drug stock nowadays? Small fish in a big pond. Why don't you catch their supplier?

    They dont belong in civilisation. Good work by the police. The seriousness of this drug problem in S.A. cannot be over-emphasized.

    This country is flooded with heroin and other hard-core narcotics. However, our dumb goverment and police force seem incapable of solving the problem. Drugs are available on every street corner in the cities.

    Locking them up is not going to solve the problem. Take a page out of China's book. These bastards are killing our children and destroying families.

      If we take into account what happens in S.A. jails, a jail sentence is as good as a death sentence. Of course it takes a little longer and if he is released from jail he has the opportunity to spread what he carries with him.

    This is a measly so called bust, only teasing the police and the public to a certain extent. Most cops are in with the dealers and they hand over these small time dealers to the cops to keep em off their backs, when is the BIG DEAL gonna be made public, never I bet as the cops make way too much money from these dealers, win win for them.....

    Well done to the police for this refuse removal from society. Pity one couldn't have kept the container under observation for a while and followed the two small fish to bigger fish but I;m happy to know that some junk was removed from oour society.
