Off duty K9 members arrest a suspect for drug dealing

NORTHERN CAPE – Earlier today, 06 August 2020 Sergeant Appie and Sgt Brink both attached to the Kimberley K9 unit received a request from Brig Nicky Mills, the group leader of Group D about information regarding drugs being sold at a shack in Homestead.
Without any hesitation and taking into consideration that the members were on rest days, they placed themselves on duty and obtained a search warrant to search the identified premises in Homestead in Kimberley.
The members searched a shack in Otto street in Homestead where they discovered tik and cat with an estimated street value of R8 225-00 as well as drug paraphernalia including 2 silver weighing scales, 1 glass plate, silver blade and empty transparent plastic bags.
A 33-year-old male was arrested and detained and the drugs and other items were confiscated. The suspect will soon appear in the Galeshewe Magistrates court on a charge of dealing in drugs.
Brig Nicky Mills commended the members for their relentlessness in removing drugs from the streets and for going the extra mile in serving the community.
