R2 Million Worth of Mandrax Found in Laundry Basket in East London

A 47-year-old man was arrested in East London after police discovered R2 million worth of mandrax stashed in his laundry basket.

East London Public Order Policing responded to a tip-off about a man selling drugs at Buffalo Flats in East London.

“They quickly acted on information and went to the house of the alleged male around 12.45 a.m. today (June 26, 2024),” said police spokesperson Captain Hazel Mqala.

She stated that when the police arrived, they spoke with him, and when they searched the house, they discovered drugs (mandrax) in his room in a laundry basket.

“Drugs to the street value of more than R2 million were confiscated and a 47-year-old was arrested.”

She stated that the suspect has been charged with drug peddling and would appear in the East London Magistrate’s Court soon.

Major General Christopher Wright, Buffalo City District Commissioner, praised the community’s efforts in the fight against narcotics and for sharing critical information that resulted in the drug recovery and arrest.

In another case this week, police in the Eastern Cape detained two persons after discovering they were in possession of R800,000 worth of dagga.

Police apprehended two males originally from Butterworth while loading twelve bags of dagga into a bakkie.

They were arrested and then freed on R800 bail apiece.
