Methaqualone Lab Busted In Johannesburg

During several months, police was monitoring a Johannesburg district on suspicion that a syndicate ran a clandestine methaqualone lab there. Eventually, a 28-year-old person was arrested on the spot, another suspect escaped for now. Along with the drug, gas masks, a press and grinder were found on the property - the equipment to press the powder into pills. The seized man was charged with possessing a firearm, manufacturing and distributing illicit substances. Presumably, the same syndicate operates in several South Africa cities including Pretoria, Johannesburg and Soweto.
