32-YEAR OLD ARRESTED FOR DEALING IN ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES
Members of the Metro Police Dog Unit executed a search warrant at a complex in Dartford Road, Parklands after information was received that the occupant was selling drugs from the premises.
The members went to the residence shortly before noon on Tuesday, 19 March 2019. The occupant refused to open the door when the members introduced themselves. The officers forced the door open and found the resident inside. The search warrant was explained to the foreign national who was occupying the premises and it was executed.
Inside the premises the officers found crystal methamphetamine in packaging ready for sale; mandrax tablets and a substance resembling heroin. Large amounts of cash were also confiscated by the officers and handed in as evidence.
The 32-year old foreign national was arrested and taken to Table View Police Station.
He will appear in the Cape Town Magistrates Court on a charge of dealing in an illegal substance.
