A 44-year old man has appeared in the Khayelitsha Magistrate Court on Thursday on charges relating to the dealing of the drug, Mandrax.
“As a result of ongoing investigations into illegal drug activities, the Khayelitsha Police obtained information of alleged drug trafficking at a premise in W-section, Site-B,” says police spokesperson, Captain Elliot Sinyangana.
Sinyangana adds that a search warrant was obtained and executed by members of the Khayelitsha police on Wednesday at the premises.
“During the search police seized 1132 mandrax tablets (with an estimate street value of R30 000) that was found in a cupboard, and arrested the 44 year old owner,” says Sinyangana.
The man is being held in custody at Pollsmoor Prison and the case has been postponed until next week Thursday for a bail application.
“This operation forms part of our continuous policing efforts to combat illegal drug activities,” says Sinyangana.
