The EMPD Drug Enforcement Unit members acted upon information received several weeks ago and closely monitored the movements of the man on a daily basis.

“On Thursday morning, the metro police commenced at 4am with the close observation of the suspected drug supplier,” said Lieut-Col Wilfred Kgasago, spokesman for the EMPD.

“An opportunity presented itself at around 10am. After searching the house, the officers discovered 17 packets of Kat in a baby’s cot, as well as a plate of cocaine rocks in a refrigerator.”

The Nigerian suspect was immediately arrested and detained at the Germiston Police Station on charges of possession of illicit substances. He appeared in the Germiston Magistrate’s Court on Friday.
