Ekurhuleni Metro Police Department spokesperson, Wilfred Kgasago, said officers had received a tip-off about the dealer and placed the man under surveillance.

“The man was approached and arrested when drugs were found hidden in his underwear. Thirty-two bags of crystal methamphetamine and cat valued at R12 500 were retrieved from the suspect’s underwear. Cash amounting to R1 530, suspected to be proceeds from drug-dealing, was confiscated from the suspect,” he said.
