On Sunday morning, a group of residents from Orange Grove, Johannesburg raided the premises of a known drug dealer in the area, and discovered more than contraband.
Sowetan Live reports that the residents forced themselves inside and followed a foul smell, which led them to stained coffins, some with soil still on them.
No dead bodies were found, and some coffins appeared to be new.

Police arrived at the scene after the coffins were dragged into the street by shocked residents.
Orange Grove reportedly suffered a wave of raids led by residents recently, who say they are targeting properties they believe have been taken over by migrants.
