Drug bust worth R 1 Million in Booysen

JOHANNESBURG – An intelligence driven operation comprising of National office drug task team, Johannesburg Metro Police Department (JMPD) and other law enforcement agencies led to a drug bust (crystal meth).

Joint efforts by law enforcement, in the early hours of the morning, operationalized the information and raided the premises in Xavier Street, Robertsham where a 45-year-old suspect was arrested.

The Gauteng Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Elias Mawela again warns those who think that normal day to day Police operations are at the back burner due to lockdown, to think again. There is no place to hide in Gauteng.

Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Elias Mawela has further commended the sterling collaborative efforts by the Gauteng police and law enforcement role players and urged the community to continue to work with the police by calling the Crime Stop number 08600 10111 or by submitting tip-offs through the MySAPS app.

The arrested suspect will appear in Johannesburg Magistrate’s Court in due course.
