Three people, aged 27, 36 and 39, were arrested on drug dealing charges in Cape Town.
Following a tip off on Thursday, City of Cape Town Metro Police seized uncut heroin with a street value of well over half a million rand in Delft.
Metro police spokeswoman Ruth Solomons said officers reacted to information received about drugs being kept at a house at the N2 Gateway housing development on Wednesday evening.
“On arrival, they found three men packaging heroin,” said Solomons.
“Officers seized 16 packets of uncut heroin with an estimated street value of R700 000 and just over R2 500 in cash.”
The three suspects are currently being held in Delft until they are due to appear in court.
