The suspect was found in possession of crystal meth and dagga and charged with possession of drugs.
A short while later, police arrested three people at one of the houses identified as a drug den in Mount Kullal street ,Lenasia South extension 4.
The police’s Kalipha Mvula said the trio have been charged with possession of drugs.
“Two males aged 21 and 36 years old as well as a 38 year old female were arrested following the discovery of thirty nine mandrel tablets while conducting a search on the premises. The arrested suspects are set to appear in court in due course once they are formally charged.”
Mvula has urged the public to continue providing police with information that may lead to the arrest of drug dealers.
