Diamond and drugs found in the possession of Welkom man
On arrival of Free State police to a suspect’s residence on Monday, they found in his possession uncut diamonds and drugs and seized all.
Brig Motantsi Makhele of Free State police said it was during a routine patrol by members of the Welkom K9 unit that a suspicious vehicle was sighted in Muizen street.
“The vehicle was approached tactically and members conducted a search which led to the confiscation of several pieces of diamonds.”
“They took the suspect to his residence, a flat in the Welkom CBD. On arrival, while they continued with the search the following were found inside the garage: 22 chrystal meth tablets, 275 Mandrax tablets and one ziplock [bag of] cocaine,” Makhele said.
The Welkom 41-year old man was thereafter arrested for having uncut diamonds in his possession and also dealing with drugs.
Makhele added that the confiscated items are estimated to amount to a street value of R40,000.
However, the man will soon come before the court in the Welkom magistrate’s court.
