Two suspects aged 35 and 37 are expected to appear at the East London Magistrates court on Monday 20 July 2020, facing a charge of dealing in drugs.
The two suspects were arrested on Friday 17 July 2020, during a joint operation carried out by the Hawks Serious Organised Crime Investigation team together with the Queenstown POPS members.
The team responded to an intelligence report about a drug exchange on Union Street, at the central business district (CBD) in East London.
The duo was approached and a subsequent search of their vehicle uncovered a total of 1000 Mandrax tablets and Crystal Meth (tik) weighing 201,33 grams.
The drugs worth a combined value of R86 000-00 along with the vehicle valued at R55 000-00 were immediately seized for further investigation.
One of the accused has a pending drug related charge and his bail application will be formally apposed.
