A special Pietermaritzburg police unit tasked with identifying and arresting drug dealers operating in the CBD found drugs hidden in baby formula when they raided the flat of a foreign national.
On Friday afternoon, the unit swooped on a Congolese national operating from a flat in East Street. Eighty-five bags of “CAT” cocaine were found concealed in baby formula tins.
Earlier in the week, the unit made another large breakthrough seizing drugs with a street value of R100 000.
The unit raided a drug den near Jabu Ndlovu and Chapel streets. The dealer, a South African woman, was arrested. Drugs found at the scene included 2750 straws of cut heroin and 100 grams of uncut heroin.
