CAPE TOWN – Police have arrested an alleged drug dealer selling drugs to school children in Plumstead, Cape Town, Western Cape police said.
“After numerous complaints from the Diep River community and neighbourhood watches, Diep River SA Police Service [officers] conducted observation duties at the area of complaint,” spokesman Captain FC van Wyk said.
“It was observed that schoolchildren in school uniform were buying drugs close to a petrol station in the Plumstead neighbourhood,” he said.
An application was made to the prosecuting authority for an undercover trap operation. The application was approved and executed on Friday.
