R50m in drugs seized

Over R50 million in illegal drugs have been seized and four people arrested in Silverton, Hawks spokesperson Captain Ndivhuwo Mulamu announced on Thursday.

Police received a tip-off on Tuesday about illegal activities which were happening at Domkrag Street in Silverton,” said Mulamu.

She said four suspects, three men and a woman were arrested for illegally manufacturing medicine with an estimated value of R50 million.

“After receiving the tip-off Hawks targeted the place before arresting the four [found] manufacturing steroids – tablets and liquid – and a manufacturing machine was seized.”

Reports indicate that Hennie Jordan (46), Brentwood Luiters (31), Merrium Twala (37), and Frans Dikgale (31), made a brief appearance at the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday on charges of drug traffic and contravening the the Medicines Control Act.

The four remained in police custody after their case was postponed to Friday for their formal bail application, said Mulamu.
