A 37-year-old man was detained by the police officers. He is suspected of possession of ammunition and drugs.
Minutes later during the raid police arrested the second man in his home in Eleventh Avenue in Leonsdale. He is suspected of drugs possession with a street value R850,000.
“Our pursuit to clamp down on the lucrative drug trade in this province resulted in the arrest of two suspects in Elsies River and Bishop Lavis during two separate crime operations this afternoon,” the police statement read.
According to the police, they were acting on intelligence which led to the suspects’ home.
Both suspects are expected to appear in the court as soon as they are charged.
