SAPS nab Scottsdene man with tik

A 19-year-old Scottsdene man was arrested for dealing in drugs last Friday May 10.

Cape Town traffic services arrested 34 motorists for drunk driving during a roadblock in the Kuils River area on Sunday May 12.

Kraaifontein police also arrested a 19-year-old man on Friday May 10 in Scottsdene for drug dealing.

Kraaifontein police spokesman, Captain Hein Hendricks, said police were patrolling in Klipbok Street, Scottsdene, when they saw the suspect running into a house when he spotted the police van.

Police chased the suspect, cornered him and he dropped a bread plastic carrier bag containing several drugs with a street value of R2 000, including tik, mandrax tablets, hash and dagga. They also found R300 cash in the packet of drugs.

“The suspect was arrested and detained at Kraaifontein SAPS on dealing in drugs charges,” said Captain Hendricks.

He is due to appear in the Kuils River Magistrate’s Court this week.

Brigadier Gerda van Niekerk, the Kraaifontein police station station commander, said they will continue with their crime-fighting operations “to stop criminals from profiting from selling drugs to the Kraaifontein community.”
