KwaZulu-Natal police have recovered an estimated R400 000 worth of heroin powder at the Richards Bay harbour. The bust has resulted in the arrest of a 30-year-old man.
“Police conducted an intelligence driven operation targeted at preventing and confiscating drugs that were smuggled into the country through the Richards Bay Harbour,” Colonel Thembeka Mbele said in Saturday.
“Border policing by police officers from the Provincial Drug and Firearm Unit resulted in the arrest of a 30-year-old man and the recovery of heroin powder.”
The man will face charges related to the possession of drugs.
“The home affairs department was alerted about the arrest,” Mbele added.
