The East London based South African Narcotics Enforcement Bureau (SANEB) of Serious Organised Crime Investigation of the Hawks took over the investigation from East London Tactical Response Team (TRT) after a bust of R75 000-00 worth of drugs.

It is alleged that on 18 March 2023, members attached to TRT discovered a large quantity of drugs, ammunition and firearm while searching a house in Cuba administrative area in Butterworth.

They arrested one suspect.

On the same day, they received further information that the drug dealer from East London who supplied the suspects with drugs was on his way to Butterworth for another delivery. The members had a description of the vehicle which is normally used to deliver the drugs and kept observation on the N2 near Komga when they noticed the suspicious vehicle.

The vehicle was stopped and searched. Upon searching, five packets of tik hidden under the passenger seat were found. The driver and his girlfriend were arrested for dealing in drugs.

Five x 100 grams packets of tik to the street value of R75 000-00 and a Ford EcoSport worth R80 000-00 were seized during the arrest.

The 27 and 29-year-old couple will appear in Komga Magistrate’s court on 20 March 2023.
