In our endeavors to strengthen the relationship between the police and the community, the Stabilization Unit followed up on information received Monday, 9 October 2017 at 16:30, that drugs are being sold from a premises in Michaels Road, Grassy Park.

Members acted on information received about a caravan and, armed with a search warrant, proceeded to the premises.

Upon searching the caravan, members found 329 mandrax tablets, as well as an undisclosed amount of cash, in a vacuum cleaner. The drugs are estimated at a street value of R13 500 and one suspect, aged 48, was arrested on charges of dealing and alternatively possession of drugs.

At about 22:30, Grassy Park SAPS Crime Prevention members acted on information received from the community that drugs are sold from a bungalow in Blackbird Street, Parkwood.

The premises was searched and mandrax tablets, tik and digital sound equipment were found, as well as an undisclosed amount of cash. A 32 year old woman and a 29 year old man were arrested on charges of dealing and alternatively possession of drugs, as well as possession of presumably stolen goods.
