Home-brewed beer stored in a 25-litre container was destroyed.

THE POLICE in Kimberley destroyed a 25-litre container of home-brewed beer and confiscated drugs with an estimated street value of R6 000 at a house in John Daka on Tuesday.

Police spokesperson Captain Olebogeng Tawana said the police arrested two suspects, aged 39 years and 45, after they found 31 small zip-locked bags containing crystal meth and one plastic bag containing khat inside the suspects’ house in Thesele Street in John Daka.

“An undisclosed amount of cash was also confiscated as it was believed to have been generated through the sale of drugs. Home-brewed beer that was stored in a 25-litre container was destroyed,” said Tawana.

He added that a 39-year-old suspect was also arrested on Tuesday and charged with possession of more than 100 mandrax tablets with an estimated street value of over R6 000.

“The mandrax tablets were found hidden inside the suspect’s house.

“All three suspects are expected to appear before the Galeshewe Magistrate’s Court soon on charges of possession and dealing in drugs.”
