The Hawks’ South African Narcotics Enforcement Bureau (SANEB), affecting a search warrant at the private Avalon Lifestyle Estate in Norkem Park on Thursday morning, uncovered a clandestine drug production laboratory inside one of the houses at the estate.

Methcathinone drugs worth an estimated R3 million was found., Capt Ndivhuwo Mulamu, provincial police spokesperson said.

Subsequently the team conducted another search at Santavo Estate in Glen Marais and seized CAT valued at about R20 000. Four suspects, including a couple, were arrested in both swoops.

General Prince Mokotedi has applauded the SANEB members for their tireless and continuous fight against illegal drugs and the continuous dismantling of illicit drug manufacturing laboratories in Gauteng.

“Drug dealing brings guns and violence into our communities.  Those who feel they can deal drugs without consequences in this province should think again.

“We are extremely thankful to communities for their partnerships that continue to help us rid our streets of illegal narcotics.  The Hawks will continue to keep the pressure on those who choose to participate in illegal drugs selling in our communities,” said Mokotedi.
