Western Cape police yesterday arrested a 30 year old man after he was found in possession of 1 003 units of mandrax worth R43 000

Police spokesperson Captain FC Van Wyk said the man was arrested on Saturday in Bishop Lavis when police were conducting routine patrols.

When officers spotted the known gangster, the officers gave chase while the driver of the vehicle tried to avoid officers who were in a marked police vehicle.

The car suddenly stopped in Turksvy Street, Bonteheuwel and the suspect jumped out and started running with SAPS members in pursuit.

Whilst running from officers the suspect threw a package containing the Mandrax on the side of the road and  was subsequently arrested.

The man is expected to appear in the Bishop Lavis Magistrate’s Court on Monday on a charge of possession of drugs.
