20 April 2024 | SANews

On Friday, 19 April, at about 16:20 pm an estimated value of R2 million worth of mandrax was confiscated from a vehicle on the N2 near Sir Lowry’s Pass, heading to Cape Town from Eastern Cape.

The confiscation is a result of a swift reaction on information received by members of the Hawks South African Narcotics Enforcement Bureau (SANEB) and Crime Intelligence’s Counter Narcotics and Gangs in the Western Cape regarding a vehicle transporting drugs from Eastern Cape to Cape Town.

The vehicle was spotted, thereafter stopped and searched.  On closer inspection, 50 packets (50 000) of mandrax were found in a false compartment in the back of the vehicle. The driver was immediately arrested.

The 33-year-old suspect will be appearing in the Strand Magistrates’ Court on Monday, 22 April 2024 on a charge of dealing in drugs.
