Trio nabbed for dealing in drugs worth R2 550 000

An Intelligence-Driven Operation has led to the arrest of three suspects who were found with drugs worth over two million rands. The arrest of the suspects, two men aged 39 and 25 as well as a 27-year-old woman came after the Nelspruit Flying Squad members, operationalized information received from the Crime Intelligence Unit about people who were suspected to be carrying drugs.

They then acted swiftly on the information gathered and spotted a Ford Eco-Boost which the suspects were using, parked at Kanyamazane Stadium.

The members approached the vehicle, ordered the occupants to alight it, and began with a search. Three bags full of suspected drugs, one on the driver's seat and two stashed in a compartment situated underneath the front passenger seat were found. The drugs worth R2 550 000.00, were tested by the White River K9 Unit and confirmed to be Heroin and as a result, they were confiscated together with the suspects' vehicle, hence the arrest.

The suspects are expected to appear before the Kanyamazane Magistrates' Court tomorrow, 21 July 2021, facing a charge of dealing in drugs.

The Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Semakaleng Manamela, has praised the collaboration displayed by the police formations that led to the arrest of the suspects. She indicated that drugs are steadily wiping young people off and in the process, robbing us of tomorrow's leaders. "My concern is that the arrested suspects are also falling within the category of young people. That means they have joined a cue to deny their fellow youth a better future by selfishly supplying them with drugs whilst they themselves enjoy a luxurious life from criminal proceeds. I am delighted though, that they have been intercepted before they could circulate their loot," said General Manamela.
