THE POLICE arrested two suspected drug dealers and confiscated drugs with an estimated street value of R1.8 million near Modderrivier on December 7.

Northern Cape police spokesperson Captain Sergio Kock said the SAPS Crime Intelligence Counter Narcotics unit, the Frances Baard District Task Team and the Modderrivier and Jacobsdal Visible Policing units stopped a gold Toyota Fortuner on the Modderrivier road, where they seized a huge amount of tik.

“The two suspects were charged with dealing in drugs and should be appearing in the Modderrivier Magistrate’s Court soon,” said Kock.

He added that the drugs were being transported from Kimberley to Koffiefontein.

The Frances Baard district commissioner, Major-General Johan Bean, applauded the team for the arrests and thanked the community for their assistance.

“The police will be out in full force during this festive season to ensure that we continue to squeeze the space in which criminals can operate,” Bean added.
