The community of Beacon Valley, gatvol of their laaities being poisoned by drug dealers, piemped to the Mitchells Plain Police Station, which led to the arrest of a suspected merchant on Thursday evening.

The 51-year-old was allegedly caught with tik and ungah (heroin) with an estimated street value of R15 000.

The whistleblower, who lives close to the suspected drug house in Peugeot Way, Beacon Valley, says her very own teenage child has become a slave to the drugs.

“He won’t go to school, he won’t even make up his bed,” says the mom.

“He steals our stuff from the house to support his addiction and that merchant is responsible because he brought that filth into the area, poisoning our children and making our lives a living nightmare.

“I have had enough and I am glad he has been arrested.”

Police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana says the arrest formed part of the police and its Stabilisation Unit’s aim to create a safe and secure environment for all people.

“The Stabilisation Unit followed up on information they received from the community about drug dealing at a house in Mitchell’s Plain,” she says.

“On Thursday at 11.15pm, a search was conducted in the house and it led to a discovery of tik and ungah valued at an estimated street value of R15 000.

“A 51-year-old man was arrested and will appear in the Mitchells Plain Magistrates’ Court today. Police management commended the community for their involvement in the fight against the drug the trade.”
