A group of alleged drug merts accused of running a pella pos for gangsters in Parkwood spent the Easter long weekend behind bars after they were busted by Grassy Park cops on Thursday.
Grassy Park Police Station commander, Colonel Dawood Laing, says instead of enjoying pickle fish and hot cross buns with their families, the group accused of merting from the hokkie in Dove Road, had to eat tronk kos in a holding cell.
“The hokkie in Dove Road has been at the centre of many complaints after it was taken over by the Six Bobs gang,” says Laing.
“Every day they are meeting through a small hole where the drug users come to buy their fix.
“The pella pos is run by the Six Bobs gang and since they started operating there, there have been numerous shootings by rival gangs.”
He says an early morning raid on the property resulted in cops confiscating their stash of Mandrax pille and tik.
“We went in there early on Thursday morning and some of them were still sleeping.
“On the property we found five males and three females, along with 29 packets of tik, one straw of tik, 10 whole Mandrax tablets and five half Mandrax tablets to the value of about R2000.
“We arrested them in their gowns and they will go to Wynberg Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday [today] on drug dealing charges.
“We even found one of the suspects with a fresh Six Bobs tjappie on his body.”
