THE POLICE arrested four suspected drug dealers in Galeshewe on Saturday.

Drugs, including mandrax tablets, crystal meth and dagga, and an undisclosed amount of cash were confiscated from “four identified addresses” in Galeshewe.

Police spokesperson Captain Bashoabile Kale said the arrests took place after a team composed of members of the Galeshewe Crime Prevention unit, the SANDF and Crime Intelligence followed up on information regarding drugs allegedly being sold at houses in the area.

“A search warrant was sourced and an operation to get drugs off the streets of Galeshewe was arranged,” said Kale.

“Four suspects were arrested and charged with dealing in drugs.

“The suspects will appear before the Galeshewe Magistrate’s Court soon.”

Kale said that the Galeshewe station commander, Brigadier Belinda Rikhotso, “lauded the job done by the members”.

Rikhotso also vowed to “squeeze the space for the drug market in Galeshewe as drugs rob our children of their futures and fan criminality in the area”.
