Four people have been arrested in central Cape Town for possession of a large amount of drugs and cash.
Constable Noloyiso Rwexana said: “The fight against the proliferation of drugs in the Western Cape was given a boost after the arrest of four suspects [on Friday] by police attached to Cape Town Central SA Police Service.”
The suspects, aged between 29 and 35, would appear in the Cape Town Magistrates’ Court today.
They were arrested during an operation conducted at Langholm flats in Kloof Street. Police searched the premises and found more than R55 000 in cash.
Upon further investigation, two black bags were discovered with high quality dagga with an estimated street value of R250 000, 20 ecstasy tablets worth about R6400, and tik packets and three containers of “liquid acid” with a street value of about R180 000.
Laptops and cellphones were also confiscated, Rwexana said.
