Three men aged between 27 and 35 believed to be Mozambican nationals were arrested on 14 May 2019, at about 07:30 on the N4 national road, at Kaapmuiden for possession of and dealing in drugs with an estimated street value of R60 million.

Police received information about two Toyota Prados with Mozambican registration numbers that were traveling along that route carrying a massive consignment, believed to be heroin. The vehicles fitting that description were spotted and intercepted whereupon one of them attempted to flee but was no match for the police.

Upon being searched, drugs were found stashed on the spare wheels of the vehicles.

Last month at a roadblock held during the launch of Operation Easter Safety Campaign, another package of heroin to the tune of R2.5 million was confiscated, also along the N4 on the outskirts of Nelspruit.

The Acting Provincial Commissioner of the Police in Mpumalanga, Major General Frans Mashika congratulated members of the community as well as the police for a job well done.
