WESTERN CAPE - An interprovincial integrated operation yielded positive results when police members detained two foreign nationals on charges of dealing in drugs on Saturday, 20 April 2024.

Police members of Colesberg SAPS intercepted a truck destined for Cape Town on Friday, 19 April 2024. When they searched the trailer, they found 12 boxes of drugs on board. After interrogating the driver, he indicated his willingness to cooperate with a controlled delivery to Cape Town. The investigation team requested the assistance from their counterparts from Organised Crime Investigations in the Western Cape. On Saturday, 20 April 2024, the truck stopped at a filling station on the N1 Highway in Worcester with police members in close proximity. The driver delivered the parcels to two unknown males who paid him for his part of the deal, transporting the drugs. After the deal was completed the police members closed the net and detained the two suspects aged 38 and 42 on a charge of dealing in drugs.

Once charged the suspects are expected to make a court appearance in the Kuilsriver Magistrates court on the mentioned charge.
