Two people were arrested after they were found in possession of Mandrax worth R5m, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.
Spokesperson Capt Andre Beetge said police spotted a suspicious silver Nissan Almera driving on the N2 close to Kinkelbos and gave chase.
Eastern Cape flying squad officers pulled the vehicle off the road and searched it, finding 50 plastic bags in the vehicle’s boot, containing 77,500 Mandrax tablets with a street value of about R5m.
The 45-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman were arrested on charges of dealing in drugs.
They were expected to appear in the Alexandria magistrate’s court on Monday.
