DURBAN – With police officers deployed across the province, the community members should expect more police visibility in their areas to curb criminal activities.

Police officers from the Provincial Drug and Firearm Unit conducted an operation at Univale Place in Phoenix yesterday. When police arrived at the said place, the outer building was left abandoned prior to police arrival. A search was conducted at the outer premises and the back yard which resulted in the recovery of 10200 capsules of heroin and 1190 pieces of rock cocaine.

Cash of R3000 was also found. The recovered drugs are valued R425 000-00. Police are still searching for the suspects who fled. We are appealing to community to continue working hand in hand with police to make our province free from drugs.
