WESTERN CAPE – In intelligence led operations, Western Cape Flying Squad members continue to make much needed dent to the drug trade. While strategically deployed along the N2 highway last night (Thursday, 09 January 2020) the members pulled over a vehicle in the vicinity of Spine Road near Khayelitsha. Upon searching the vehicle they found 69 000 mandrax tablets packed in a thousand plastic bags. They also seized the vehicle transporting the drugs. A 45 year old suspect was arrested and is expected in court on Monday, 13 January 2020 on charges of possession and dealing in drugs.
