Jeffreys Bay police arrested four suspects for possession of crystal methamphetamine (commonly known as tik) valued at R327 000 and also seized a vehicle used in conveying the illicit drugs in Jeffrey’s Bay.

On 7 January 2019, around 06:30, members from Crime Prevention Unit in Jeffreys Bay received information about a blue Toyota Corolla Quest that was transporting tik and entering Jeffrey’s Bay through St Francis Street. Members used an unmarked vehicle to follow up the information.

Moments later, police spotted the vehicle with four occupants driving at St Francis Street. Police managed to pull the vehicle off the road and then asked to search the vehicle for possible illicit drugs.

In the vehicle, police seized 1.09 kilograms of tik and also impounded the motor vehicle for further investigation. A preliminary investigation has revealed that the motor vehicle was not roadworthy. The four suspects aged between 29 and 36 are due to appear in court soon on charges of possession of crystal methamphetamine.

Humansdorp Cluster Commander, Brigadier John Lebok said: “It is pleasing to see that some residents are working with the police to fight the proliferation of illicit drugs”.
