Two arrested for drug possession in Camps Bay

Two suspects have been arrested in Camps Bay in Cape Town on charges of possession of drugs.

Police spokesperson FC van Wyk says they monitored premises at Brighton Court from where one of the suspects is allegedly dealing in narcotics.

‘’The suspect is linked to a farm in Stellenbosch where he apparently cultivates dagga. Information was that the suspect is at the above mentioned address and the members reacted on the information, gained entry and arrested two suspects aged 45 and 50. They found a large amount of drugs in the flat with an estimated street value of R250 000,’’ says van Wyk.

The suspects are expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday on charges of possession of drugs.

In an unrelated matter, Mitchells Plain Proactive Team received information about a male with an illegal firearm at a house in 5th Avenue, Tafelsig on Sunday.

Van Wyk said that when they arrived at the address at 06:30, they found a male on the premises and noticed an object on his waist.

‘’The suspects then became aggressive and tried to fight with the members, but was subdued. Police seized a .38 Special revolver with a serial number and three .38 Special rounds in the chamber.,’’ says Captain FC van Wyk.

A 28-year-old male was arrested on charges relating to the possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition. He is expected to appear in court once charged.
