Cocaine and KAT worth thousands of rands where confiscated from Windsor House, Johannesburg(SABC)
A manhunt is underway following a drug bust at Windsor House, which saw police confiscate thousand of rands worth of drugs. The police crackdown came days after SABC News exposed rampant drug dealing in the once upmarket Johannesburg suburb.
Police are currently searching for a Nigerian man they believe is part of the drug syndicate. Police say they had been monitoring his car. South African Police Services, Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said they searched the garage and found more drugs worth sixty thousand rands.
The previous elite areas is now a playground for foreign nationals to sell their illegal candies. While from the outside the block of flats look decent, inside hides a storage facility for hard drugs such as cocaine and Kat. Windsor House is now owned by Nigerian national who are believed to be one of the main drug distributors in the area.
Last week, SABC News exposed Windsor druglords' modus operandi even buying some drugs from a well known dealer in broad daylight. The dealer was also involved in the Identity Document scams. They have since learnt that the dealer may have fled the country.
Police have warned dealers in the area that many more raids are to follow.
