The suspect, according to reports, had been found packaging the drugs at the apartment he keeps at Aston Place flats in Kempton Park in Ekurhuleni.

EMPD spokesman, Chief Superintendent Wilfred Kgasago, confirming the incident, revealed that they had acted on a tip- off.

"We received reliable information about a drug dealer operating from a flat in Long Street. The EMPD Drug Enforcement Unit acted on that information. It resulted in the arrest of a man found in possession of the drug cat estimated to be worth about R300 000 on the streets."

Kgasago adds that the bust had been part of the EMPD operation called, Bumper to Bumper.

"Surveillance of the suspect was carried out over a period of three days. The opportune time to pounce on the drug dealer presented itself on Thursday. The man was found in his room unpacking a huge quantity of the illicit substance that was mostly in block form."

The suspect was reportedly arrested and charged with dealing in illicit substances and is expected to appear in the Kempton Park Magistrates Court soon.
