JOHANNESBURG - Three men are expected to appear in the Johannesburg Magistrates Court on Thursday following a major drug bust in Germiston.

On Tuesday, the Hawks uncovered a drug lab with more than R2 million worth of mandrax.

Police say the suspects may be part of a larger drug syndicate operating in the city.

Spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi says, "Further investigations led us to an address in Mulbarton where we managed to confiscate lots of drugs including chemicals and equipment that was used."
