CAPE TOWN - A suspected drug dealer was arrested in Ottery on Wednesday morning with drugs valued at around R4-million.

Police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut said Grassy Park police noticed a vehicle driving under “suspicious circumstances” in Ottery.

He said the driver sped off when he saw the police approaching him, but was apprehended.

Police searched the car of the 32-year-old foreign national and found a large quantity of drugs and money.

“The drugs, comprising two kilograms of crystal meth, a large quantity of mandrax, dagga, and a large quantity of cocaine, have an estimated street value of R4-million.

"A substantial amount of cash was also seized,” said Traut.

Traut said the man was expected to appear in the Wynberg magistrate’s court on a charge of dealing in drugs.
