A man described as the "most wanted drug dealer" in Lenasia, south of Johannesburg, has been arrested, Gauteng police said on Friday

Residents had complained that the man, 34, was using young boys to sell drugs in the area, said Captain Mavela Masondo.

He was traced to a house in the area and found with drugs including Mandrax, crystal meth, and CAT (methcathinone).

Masondo said two of his "runners" were also arrested after being found with drugs in the same house.

Community support

Preliminary investigation revealed he was being sought for possession of an unlicensed firearm in an Eldorado Park police case.

"The police would like to thank the community for coming forth with information and exposing criminals in their community," said Masondo.

The group will appear in the Lenasia Magistrate's Court soon for possession and dealing in drugs.
