Western Cape police have arrested a truck driver and confiscated drugs worth more than R3 million on the N-1 in Laingsburg.

Police spokesperson Malcolm Pojie says officers from Rural Flying Squad performed patrols on the highway when they followed their instinct to pull over the truck.

Pojie says the 42-year-old man is expected to appear in the Laingsburg Magistrate’s court on Monday.

“The members ensued with a search of the driver and the truck upon which they found 10 packets containing mandrax concealed in a box and eight boxes containing compressed dagga. The value of the drugs is estimated at about R3.54 million.”
