Table View police officers had received information regarding a vehicle in the Bloubergrandt area which was possibly involved with drugs, Western Cape police spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk said. On locating the vehicle in question on Friday, which was parked inside a complex, a "scared" woman, "clinging profusely to her handbag", was found in a car. "Inside they found numerous containers with liquid cocaine to the estimated value of about R3 000 000. The members then continued with further searching of the whole perimeter and in the garden area they found containers with tik and cash." At about 3.10pm on Sunday, officers attached to Malmesbury and Riebeeck West police stations, with the assistance from the Swartland Traffic and Law Enforcement, executed a search warrant at a house in Riebeeck West of a known drug dealer. A high-speed chase ensued and the suspect drove to his house in Meerendal Street and bolted the gates, refusing access to his premises, Van Wyk said. Outside the house, the officers allegedly found sachets containing tik, mandrax tablets, stoppe dagga and a black refuse bag filled half with loose dagga. The 59-year-old suspect will appear at the Malmesbury Magistrate's Court on Monday on drug-related charges and crimen injuria. During their search officers allegedly found large amounts of tik and mandrax concealed in containers inside the house. The suspect was arrested on charges of possession and dealing in drugs, and is due to appear at the Cape Town Magistrate's Court on Monday.
