Two suspects aged 26 and 38 are appeared in the Witbank Magistrates Court on Thursday, 21 October 2021, after they were arrested in an intelligence-driven operation by the Middelburg-based Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation team on the N4 highway near the Bethal off-ramp.
Police received information about the truck that was transporting drugs from Mozambique to the Gauteng province. They proceeded to the freeway where a truck with two foreign nationals was stopped. A search was conducted and newly-welded compartments were discovered at the back of the truck. Thirty-four plastic containers with crystal meth each weighing a kilogram were found concealed in that compartment.
Both men were immediately arrested and charged for possession of drugs. The drugs had an estimated street value of more than R1.5 million.
