Western Cape police have seized illegal drugs valued at about R13 million in three major busts in two days.
Spokesperson, Brigadier Novela Potelwa, says in total six suspects were arrested and some of them have already appeared in court.
Potelwa says on Tuesday police intercepted large quantities of heroin, crystal meth and
cocaine valued at R5.4 million in the West Coast town of Vredendal.
On Wednesday, police raided two storage facilities at Westlake and Noordhoek where they seized 30 000 mandrax tablets and crystal meth valued at R2.1 million.
Potelwa says the third bust for dagga was also on Wednesday: "Lockdown II forces descended on residence in Windsor, Kraaifontein where a dagga cultivating lab with dagga products were seized.
The value of the seizure is estimated at is R5.4 million.
Police believe the seizures will go a long way in efforts to rid Western Cape communities of drugs." "https://nari.co.za/images/influencer/4/May2021/184511733_4211658392219846_3991261535527042810_n.jpg",
