Five men including a warrant officer from the Orlando Police Station have been arrested in connection with a drug bust worth an estimated R 100 million in De Deur, south of Johannesburg.

It’s understood the Hawks yesterday swooped on houses in Bassonia, De Deur and Zakariyya Park which allegedly belongs to the 59-year-old officer.

“The Hawks conducted a raid at a house in Zakariyya Park. They found it was used to manufacture drugs. 5 people were arrested and amongst the five there is a police officer who’s working at the Orlando SAPS. The suspects have been charged with manufacturing and dealing in drugs.”
