Former Kaizer Chiefs player and football commentator Mike Mangena has reportedly been arrested after drugs were allegedly found on one of his properties.
Reports have recently been doing the rounds suggesting that the Chiefs legend has been embroiled in an alleged drug bust after a raid on a plot in Randfontein.
Furthermore, it is believed that the property allegedly owned by the former striker has been used as a factory to allegedly manufacture drugs.
Nonetheless, reports suggest that three men were arrested when police swooped on the plot with Mangena believed to have not been at the property.
However, according to reports, Mangena was later called to the plot and was subsequently taken away by police.
“He was called and came to the plot. Then he was taken to the police station in a cop van,” a source told the Daily Sun.
The publication further report that the drugs allegedly found were valued in the region of R50 million.
Meanwhile, Police spokesperson Colonel Brenda Muridili has confirmed the raid on the alleged ‘drug den’.
“The multi-disciplinary team observed the smallholding for a period of time, until they were satisfied that they had enough evidence to apply for a search warrant,” Police spokesperson Colonel Brenda Muridili as reported by News24.
“The search warrant was effected in the early hours of this (Wednesday) morning and the team discovered a steel shed full of chemicals and machines used to manufacture mandrax as well as a truck containing liquid chemicals,” the spokesperson added.
“The forensic science laboratory crime scene investigators are currently at the scene collecting evidence. The value of the clandestine drug laboratory will be determined by forensics as soon as they are done with their analysis,” she explained.
