The K9 Unit appears to be sniffing out drugs and cleaning up the streets of Cape Town along with their two-legged counterparts. In a statement released on October 20, Western Cape police arrested four suspects that were found to have concealed drugs worth an estimated value of R40 000.
According to the statement, members of the Breederiver K9 Unit with Ceres police executed a search warrant at a home in Impala Street, Ceres. Two women and two men aged between 27 and 30 were apprehended and are set to appear in court on Thursday, October 21, for the concealment of drugs.
Approximately eight grams of crystal meth and 776 mandrax tablets were concealed on the roof and hidden in a bag, states provincial spokesperson Brigadier Novela Potelwa.
Meanwhile, five suspects were arrested in Lansdowne earlier this month with the help of the K9 Unit. Along with the keen noses of some incredible K9s and resourceful officers, approximately 59 live rounds of ammunition and 35 mandrax tablets were confiscated.
