According to Tshwane West Cluster spokesperson, Constable Tumisang Moloto, the suspects were arrested in separate incidents during intelligence driven operation conducted by police jointly with Tshwane metro police department (TMPD) officers.

“In the first incident, police received a tip- off from members of the public about suspicious drug activities at one of the houses in Marina street Clubview,” Moloto said.
