Johannesburg - Two men were arrested in Lenasia, south of Johannesburg, after they were found with drugs including tik and Mandrax, Gauteng police said on Tuesday.

“Police followed up on information that they were dealing in drugs from a house in Lenasia,” spokesman Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said.

Police raided the house on Monday and confiscated 542 Mandrax tablets, 89 plastic bags containing dagga and 150 packets of crystal meth, also known as tik, said Makhubela.

The men, aged 36 and 40, would appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court soon on charges of drug possession.
