Integrated operation confiscates drugs with an estimated street value of R6,5 million

On Friday, 05 July 2024, police members of Anti-Gang Unit led an integrated operation in the City Centre assisted by members of the City of Cape Town, Provincial Government and Crime Intelligence with a targeted approach to identified businesses.

Upon entering an identified premises in Castle Street, some individuals fled in different directions. During interrogation, a foreign national led the team to an address in Maitland where they searched the entire premises as well as mobile devices which eventually drew their attention to a container located in Milnerton.

The members entered the container and a search ensued which resulted in the confiscation of 28 500 ecstasy tablets with an estimated street value of R 6,5 million including manufacturing devices. They detained two suspects on charges of dealing in drugs.

Once charged the suspects are expected to make a court appearance in the Cape Town Magistrates court on the mentioned charge.
