THREE suspected drug dealers were arrested by members of the SAPS Kimberley K9 and provincial Organised Crime units after raiding a house in Beaconsfield on Tuesday night.
Police spokesperson Colonel Mashay Gamieldien said that police members had been observing and monitoring movement in the vicinity of the house and later obtained a search warrant.
“Upon arrival at the house police found a man sitting outside, but before they were able to search him he swallowed a white substance,” said Gamieldien.
She said that the police found cat, with an estimated street value of R3,000, hidden under the dashboard of a Toyota Yaris that was searched.
“The vehicle was seized as it was allegedly used in the commission of a crime,” said Gamieldien.
“The team proceeded to the house where they encountered a male and female. Upon searching the house they found tik concealed in an empty yoghurt container with an estimated street value of R48,900.”
Gamieldien said that three foreign nationals, one female, aged 27, and two males aged 20 and 29 respectively, were arrested and charged with dealing in drugs.
“They will appear in the Kimberley Regional Court soon.”
