Man arrested for drugs worth R2 million in Cape town

A 53-year-old man was arrested by Western Cape police after they confiscated drugs worth more than R2 million in a weekend drug bust.

Officers from the provincial traffic department, deployed near Laingsburg, spotted a suspicious-looking truck travelling toward Cape Town on Sunday at about 23:00.

According to police spokesperson Captain Malcolm Pojie after a vehicle search they discovered two bags of dagga weighing about 60.2kg as well as 39 000 mandrax tablets that were concealed in plastic bags.

He further stated they were suspected to be destined for distribution in the province.

The man is scheduled to appear in the Laingsburg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday on charges of dealing in drugs.
