Cape Town - Acting on a tip-off, Philippi police swooped on a flat in Derwant Court, Hanover Park, yesterday morning and confiscated tik worth R20 000.

As police entered, a 45-year-old man jumped out of a bedroom window. The flat is on the first floor.

“Police gave chase and caught up with him at Athburg Walk,” said police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Andre Traut.

The man had appeared in Athlone Magistrate’s Court on drug possession charges and had been released on bail.
