A ROODEPAN couple was arrested by the police’s K9 unit at the weekend after drugs with an estimated street value of R100,000 were found in their possession.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Mohale Ramatseba said the arrest followed after the police investigated an alleged drug dealing case in Leratong Park.

“The two were arrested in Roodepan after police followed up on information about drug peddling at a certain house in the Leratong Park area. With the assistance of Jesse, a police dog, dagga and mandrax with an estimated street value of R100,000 were found hidden in a car and inside the house of the suspects,” said Ramatseba.

“Both suspects are expected to appear in court on charges of dealing in drugs soon,” he added.

The Northern Cape police are also investigating a burglary after the De Aar Post Office was robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash at the weekend.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Luvuyo Poni said the post office made the discovery and alerted the authorities.

“The post office master was met with the fumes of a grinder when he and his colleagues reported for duty. They noticed that the private parcel counter was tampered with as its security gate was blocking the door from opening. After notifying the police, police officials found that the door to the strong room was forced open and an undisclosed amount of cash was taken from the safe,” said Poni.

He urged anyone with information regarding the matter to contact the police on 086 00 1011.
