On Saturday, 26 November at about 19:00 Anti-Gang Unit (AGU) members executed a search warrant at a house in Highfield Road in Korsten.
According to Colonel Priscilla Naidu, police spokesperson, a total of 2 947 tablets (Stilpain, Purata, Brazepan and Tripeline) were confiscated.
"A 40-year-old woman was arrested and detained for contravening the Medicines Control Act. The estimated street value of the tablets is R12 842. Police also confiscated cash," Naidu said.
The woman will appear in the Gelvandale Magistrate's Court on Monday, 28 November.
Police are warning people that Schedule 5/6 tablets, as the ones that were seized, must require a prescription from a medical practitioner and cannot be bought from any individual who is not a doctor.
