Six alleged drug dealers aged between 50 and 31 are expected to appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday 25 March 2020, to face drug dealing related charges.
According to the Hawks, the suspects were arrested on Monday, 23 March 2020.
This follows a Hawks’s Serious Organised Crime project driven Investigation in the greater Mangaung area of Bloemfontein.
According to the Hawks, the operation was conducted following an intelligence surveillance operation where the group’s illegal activities were monitored and evidence has been gathered since 2017. “Over a period of time the group unsuspectingly sold supplies of various drugs to undercover police members, which resulted in 16 case dockets being registered and their recent arrest,” said Hawks spokesperson, Warrant-Officer Lynda Steyn.
