CAPE TOWN - Camps Bay police have arrested two suspected drug dealers and confiscated illegal drugs worth R250,000.

Officers raided the suspects’ Brighton Court flat on Monday and the duo was expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrates Court on Tuesday on charges of possession with intent to deal drugs.

Police said they had spent some time monitoring the Camps Bay flat from which drugs were allegedly sold.

But they were biding their time as they had received intelligence that one of the suspects was linked to a large-scale dagga cultivating farm in Stellenbosch.

On Monday, police got a tipoff that the suspect was at the flat in Brighton Court. They swooped on the premises and arrested the man and one other suspect.
