Butterworth - A hitch-hiker was arrested in Arcadia on Tuesday after being allegedly found in possession of mandrax tablets, East London police said.

Police, acting on a tip-off about a drug dealer on Recreation Road, took the 45-year-old man who was hitch-hiking from East London to Butterworth into custody, Captain Stephen Marais said.
