Mandrax and crystal meth recovered as Hawks swoop on dealers, EL

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.
