National Police Commissioner Khehla Sithole says the discovery of a drugs manufacturing lab in Orlando West in Soweto is the result of improved crime intelligence gathering.
Police raided the property just after midnight on Wednesday following a tip-off from the community. Residents say no one lives in the house but they have seen one person going in and out of the property.
Commissioner Sithole has praised police for the breakthrough in the fight against drugs. “This breakthrough means we have been able to chop the supply of drugs,” said Sithole.
