  • Police seize R3 billion worth of heroin in biggest SA drug bust
    Posted by on Jun 27th, 2014

    I’ve been in the Kruger Park for the past week so only catching up now on the news so if you’ve already heard it then move along hey.

    Meanwhile in Durban…police have seized R3 billion worth of uncut heroin from an upmarket house in Kloof. Officers discovered more than 200 bags of pure heroin powder weighing 50kg each. That’s a lot of dope.

    Apparently the drugs were destined to be exported.

    “The 2ha Durban home – boasting an indoor squash court, triple garage, multiple bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and an underground bunker – situated in the affluent suburb of Kloof, gave no hint of what was going on inside.

    Until yesterday little was known about the owners of the large tree-lined home or the alleged activities there.

    Then a tip-off to the Durban police led to the discovery of possibly the biggest heroin-manufacturing laboratory in the country and seizure of the narcotic haul – an estimated 10tons of it.

    The house, surrounded by high walls, was merely a facade, containing only a few belongings of the two Chinese nationals and a South African who police arrested in a raid on Tuesday night.” [TimesLIVE]

    Now you know.
