Detectives from the Organised Crime Unit have raided a residence at Mfuleleni near Khayelitsha as part of ongoing efforts to rid communities of drug dealing that lead to serious violent crime.
They seized more than a thousand mandrax tablets as well as fraudulent driver’s licenses purportedly issued in Ghana.
Police spokesperson, Brigadier Novella Potelwa, says detectives also confiscated cash, cell phones and electronic items.
Potelwa says the arrest and seizures form part of concerted efforts to curb the activities of criminal syndicates.
A 48-year-old suspect, who tried to evade arrest, is expected to appear in the Blue Down’s magistrates court today.
