Man arrested for drug possession in Strand.

Cops say they have caught a man red-handed as he tried to get rid of a bag of drugs worth over R26 000.

Police were carrying out a drug operation in the Strand community yesterday when they noticed the man’s suspicious behaviour.

Police noticed the man attempting to throw a bag over a wall, which they suspect he tried to get rid of before they could reach a residence.

Once cops searched the bag, and they found tik, mandrax and dagga with an estimated street value of R26 660.

The man is expected to make an appearance at the Strand Magistrates’ Court soon on a charge of the possession of drugs.
