Dealers arrested

Four drug dealers were arrested in Viljoenskroon in less than three days.

This happened after disheartened residents, who could no longer live with the evil of drugs in their community, notified the authorities.

On Wednesday (08/05) members of the Welkom Public Order Policing (POP) Reaction Team were busy with routine patrols in Rammulotsi, Viljoenskroon, when they received information about people who were dealing in drugs in the neighbourhood.

Upon investigation the police found a man and woman busy preparing dagga pokes and nyaope (a mixture of heroin and dagga).

They were immediately arrested.

The police confiscated dagga, 20 pokes of dagga, nyaope and R1 195 in cash.

On the same day, another drug dealer was arrested in the neighbourhood. The 30-year-old male was found in possession of 10 Mandrax tablets, 12 quarter Mandrax tablets and five half Mandrax tablets with an estimated street value of R1 240. The police also confiscated R860 in cash.

In a third incident a 28-year-old Nigerian man was arrested on Friday (10/05) in Rammulotsi for being in possession of 26 small crystal meth packages, 14 medium crystal meth packages and 19 medium packages of CAT. He faces charges of dealing in drugs.

All four suspects have been charged with the manufacturing and selling of drugs.

“My appreciation goes to residents of Viljoenskroon who are sick and tired of drug circulation. I would like to applaud the POP Reaction Team for their excellent work by ensuring that these drug dealers will face the law,” says the cluster commander of Kroonstad, Brig. Mapulane Mbeloane.
