3 Arrested with R240k worth of mandrax, Warrenton

Kagisho Isaac Moiloa (49), Anna Moiloa (64) and Zusakhe Johnson (38), made a brief appearance before Warrenton Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, 11 April 2023, on charges of alleged dealing in drugs.

The three suspects were arrested on Thursday, 6 April 2023 near Warrenton by the Hawks Serious Organised Crime Investigation team assisted by Kimberley Flying Squad.

The arrest came after information was received regarding three suspects travelling from Johannesburg to Kimberley with a consignment of drugs. The team swiftly operationalised the information and monitored a silver golf GTI on the N12 road between Christiana and Kimberley.

The vehicle was spotted on the N12 road near Warrenton.

One of the suspects on the passenger side leaped out of the vehicle with a bag and attempted to hide it in the bushes. The driver sped off in an attempt to evade being arrested, leaving the suspect with a bag behind who was later arrested and the bag was secured. The team gave chase and pursued the vehicle, and the suspect’s vehicle was pulled over and brought to a halt.

The scene was processed by Hartswater Local Criminal Record Centre, upon which the bag and the vehicle were thoroughly searched. During the search, 4000 mandrax tablets with an estimated street value of R240 000-00 was found in the bag.

Three cell phones and a VW Golf GTI were also seized for further investigation.

All suspects are remanded in custody and the case is postponed to Friday, 21 April 2023 for bail application.
