Police arrests suspects with over R300,000 Tik

Police arrested four suspects in possession of crystal methamphetamine  (commonly known as tik) valued at R327 000 and also seized a vehicle used in conveying the illicit drugs in Jeffreys Bay today.

At around 6:30 yesterday (Monday 7th January) members from Crime Prevention in Jeffreys SAPS received information that a blue Toyota Corolla Quest entering Jeffreys Bay through St Francis Street was transporting tik.  Members used an unmarked vehicle to follow-up the information and moments later, police spotted the vehicle fitting the description with four occupants driving at St Francis Street. Police managed to pull the vehicle off the road and then asked to search the vehicle for possible illicit drugs.

Inside the vehicle, police seized 1.09 kilograms of tik and also impounded the motor vehicle for further investigation. A preliminary investigation has revealed that the motor vehicle was unroadworthy. The four suspects aged between 29 and 36 are due to appear at the Humansdorp Magistrate’s Court tomorrow on charges of possession of crystal methamphetamine  (tik).

Humansdorp Cluster Commander, Brigadier John Lebok said: “It is pleasing to see that some residents are working with the police to fight the proliferation of illicit drugs”.
