A lawyer has been arrested at the Bellville Magistrates Court, South Africa for being in possession of drugs.

South African Police Service (SAPS) spokesperson Colonel Andre Traut said the vigilance of the Bellville court orderly led to the arrest of the suspect on Wednesday morning, 22 September.

Colonel Andre Traut said that 200 mandrax tablets and tik were confiscated after the lawyer was searched by a court orderly.

“The police officer was on duty at the Belville Magistrates Court when he noticed the lawyer with a green plastic bag which caught his attention. During the court proceedings, the lawyer was excused by the presiding magistrate due to the suspicion that he was intoxicated.”

“The lawyer who resides in Khayelitsha was arrested and is expected to make his court appearance at the same court where he was arrested once he has been charged,” said the police spokesperson.

The police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the matter, added Traut.
