JOHANNESBURG – Police have thanked whistle blowers whose information lead them to two drug houses in Thembisa and arresting two known drug dealers.

Two men were arrested on Sunday morning in Tembisa while they were loading drugs allegedly intended for delivery to sell.

The police’s Kay Makhubele says the South African Police Service intelligence was informed of houses in the area which are used to manufacture drugs.

He says when officers arrived at the Tembisa house with the K9 unit they arrested two suspects who have been charged with dealing and manufacturing drugs.

“When they arrived they found that two men who were in the house were loading some drugs in the car. Some drugs were still in the house, and manufacturing machines and chemicals which are used to manufacture the drugs.”

The spokesperson says the raid led them to a second home where more drugs were found.

“Those suspects were arrested and led the police to another house in Ivory Park where they found other drugs and some equipment that they used to manufacture the drugs.

Makhubele says the pair will appear in the Tembisa Magistrates Court.
