Cape Town -

Two men were arrested and tik and cocaine worth more than R1 million seized at a flat in Mowbray.

Police said Maitland’s Flying Squad had swooped on the flat in Priority Street on Wednesday night after police received a tip-off about drug dealing at the premises.

At about 7.15pm the officers searched the flat and found the drugs and money, said provincial police spokesman Captain Frederick van Wyk.

He said that two men, aged 32 and 37, were arrested and will appear in Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Friday on a charge of possession of drugs.

Meanwhile, three men were arrested in Kraaifontein on Thursday.

They have been charged with being in possession of drugs after officers on patrol were tipped off about drug peddlers operating in the Bloekombos informal settlement.

The three men, aged 20, 29 and 58, are from Bloekombos.
