According to Provincial spokesperson in North West Colonel Adele Myburgh, police responded to a call by members of the SANDF who were patrolling along the Botswana/South Africa borderline, after they spotted a suspicious truck, which allegedly stopped due to a deflated tyre.

“Upon searching the truck, illicit cigarettes were found and confiscated. Investigations into the matter are under way,” Myburgh said.
