Police in KwaZulu-Natal have made the biggest drug lab bust in the history of the province.

Heroin with an estimated street value of over R2 billion has been confiscated in Kloof, Durban, in the biggest drug lab found in the province, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Wednesday.

"On Tuesday, a joint operation successfully uncovered the biggest drug lab to ever be exposed in... KwaZulu-Natal," Captain Thulani Zwane said.

After gathering intelligence on the house, in an elite suburb, the Umhlali K9 (dog unit) and task team, as well as Phoenix crime intelligence and tactical response team, raided the house.

They found three men and a number of 40kg bags of pure heroin powder, industrial manufacturing machines, scales, and containers.

The men, aged 23, 55 and 56, were arrested and would be charged in the Pinetown Magistrate's Court with manufacturing drugs no later than Thursday.
