A 41-YEAR-old woman is expected to appear in the Galeshewe Magistrate’s court soon after she was found in possession of drugs with an estimated street value of R300,000 at a house in Kanana, Roodepan earlier this week.

Police spokesperson Captain Bashoabile Kale said that the Roodepan Crime Prevention and Crime Intelligence units received information about a suspected drug house in Kanana informal settlement. The house was put under surveillance and a search warrant was obtained.

“During the search, the police found about 128 bankies of tik, 29 ice packs of tik, 11 full Mandrax tablets and five halves and four quarters of mandrax tablets. One packet of cat and an undisclosed amount of cash was also confiscated,” said Kale.

“The total estimated street value of the drugs is R300,000.

“A 41-year-old woman was charged for dealing in drugs and will appear before the Galeshewe Magistrate’s Court soon.”

Kale said that the acting Roodepan station commander, Lieutenant-Colonel Pieter Jansen, commended sergeants Eugene Olyn and Amada van Schalkwyk and constables Tebogo Gaosekwe, Daniel Mogamisi and Mzuvukile Ngqanyashe “for a job well done in removing drugs from the community”.
