Milnerton SAPS Crime Prevention members received information during the early hours of 9 November 2022, regarding drugs at an apartment near a shopping mall in Milnerton.

The members reacted on the information given to them by their reliable source and secured success.

On their arrival they found two males, aged 27 and 29 respectively, together with a young male aged 22.

The members searched the flat and found a large quantity of drugs, covered in brown plastic bags and sealed with green tape that contained mandrax, tik and cocaine.

The drugs were destined to be transported the same evening to dealers. A total of 65 420 mandrax tablets, 34 plastic bags containing tik and a smaller bag containing cocaine were confiscated at the flat.

The estimated street value of the drugs is still to be determined.

All three suspects were arrested for possession and dealing in drugs and will appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s court on 10 November 2022.

Western Cape Provincial Commissioner, Lt Gen Patekile used this opportunity to thank the community for sharing information in order to get drugs off our streets, and further express his gratitude to the members for their commitment in executing the duties with diligence.
