Three suspects arrested for dealing in drugs in the Northern Cape are expected to appear before the Postmasburg Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
The trio, aged between 28 and 32, were arrested on Thursday after the police conducted a search and seizure operation.
Hawks spokesperson, Nomthandazo Mnisi, says information was received regarding drugs that were stored at different locations in Postmasburg, which led to the police’s operation.
She says drugs - including tik, kat and dagga with an estimated street value of about R15 000 - were recovered. Mnisi says a gun was also confiscated for further investigation.
The arrest comes just days after Police Minister Bheki Cele sent a stern warning against any form of criminality, including the contravention of the Covid-19 regulations.
Cele has warned that the police throughout the country will leave no stone unturned in the fight against crime.
