Tshwane metro police have arrested two men after discovering a drug lab in Lanceria.

The metro police said the men were arrested after receiving a tip-off about the two’s illicit operations.

“The Tshwane metro police drug team was doing a follow-up on a tip-off about a drug house in Lanceria. The information was received a month ago about a drug called magic mushroom that was being sold around Pretoria,” said the metro police in a statement.

The city’s law enforcement officers said the estimated street value of the seized drugs stood at R100 000.

“The drug comes in a pill form. After thorough investigation, the officers raided the house and they discovered the drug lab inside the small holding. They found drugs, drug manufacturing equipment and materials with the estimated street value of R100 000,” said the statement.
