JOHANNESBURG – The Durban Flying Squad Narcotic Task Team recovered drugs valued at R95,000 and arrested a 52-year-old man in Durban, South African Police Services said.

Spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala said on Wednesday that the man was arrested in Monty Naicker road in the Durban CBD area following a tip off.

“The members proceeded to the identified hair Salon premises and a search was conducted. Half full moons of Rock cocaine, 295 grams of cocaine and R2,430.00 cash was found in the premises. The street value of the recovered drugs is estimated at R95,000,” Gwala said.

The suspect was arrested and charged for possession of drugs. He is expected to appear in the Durban Magistrate’s Court later Wednesday.

“The team is dedicated in eradicating drugs in the greater Durban area and an appeal is made to the public to give us information about drug dealers in their areas,” Gwala added.
