The Hawks arrested a 46 year-old man at the
OR Tambo International Airport on Monday with cocaine. It is alleged that the
man is a South African and he was arrested on his way back from Dubai.
The man was charged with possession and
dealing in drugs and he remains in police custody.
Hawks Spokesperson Paul Ramaloko said this
man who is wheelchair bound was arrested after he landed at OR Tambo
Ramaloko said 18 packets of cocaine was
confiscated from his bag and he is expected to appear in the Kempton Park
Magistrate Court on Thursday, on charges of
possession of drugs.
“We believe that the man is part of a bigger
syndicate which are internationally linked and hopefully his arrest will lead
us to other people involved in this syndicate” Ramaloko added.
