What has been described as a “clandestine laboratory with different chemicals and drugs” was found in a house in Sunset Beach yesterday. According to police spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk police officers reacted to a tip-off about “drug activities at the house.”

Members of the Visible Policing Unit swooped down on the house at 00:10 yesterday morning. Police searched the premises and seized four mandrax tablets, three ecstasy tablets and a small quantity of magic mushrooms. A further search yielded a clandestine laboratory with different chemicals and drugs in one of the rooms.

Three  suspects  (aged 22, 38 and 53)  were arrested. The estimated street value of the drugs is still to be determined. The suspects will appear in the Cape Town Magistrates’ court tomorrow.
