The drugs suspected to be CAT were on 16 August 2019, at 07:00 removed from the streets of Eersterust after a 21 year old man was arrested by the South African Police Bronkhorspruit K9 unit at Titus Avenue.
The police members were busy with their intelligence led operation at Titus Avenue, which is a street notorious for drug peddling when they noticed a suspicious young man standing opposite one of the houses known for selling drugs.
Whilst searching him the police found 118 packets of drugs suspected to be CAT with an estimated street value of R35000-00 concealed in the suspect’s clothing. They also found considerable amount of cash in his possession.
The suspect was subsequently arrested and detained at Eersterust SAPS pending appearance in court.
The Station Commander of Eersterust SAPS Lt. Colonel Maesela John Kgoetego was delighted by the great news and he thanked the K9 members for the excellent job done and further said that 118 lives that was supposed to be ruined by the same drugs have been spared.
Meanwhile the suspect will appear in Hatfield Court on Monday 19 August 2019, on charges of possession and dealing in drugs.
