Northern Cape police spokesperson Captain Olebogeng Tawana said the suspect had been under police surveillance.

“He was apprehended at his premises in Kolong Street, Pampierstad on July 15 during an operation dubbed ‘Save a Life’,” said Tawana.

He stated that members from Hartswater Crime Intelligence, with the assistance of the Hartswater K9 narcotic dog and the High Way Patrol, raided the suspect’s residence and conducted a search-and-seizure operation.

“The suspect was found in possession of 30 quarters of mandrax tablets and one half mandrax tablet, with an estimated street value of R600, as well as money believed to be the proceeds of drug dealing.”
