A 54-year-old suspect from Gauteng was arrested.Cluster Commander of Pixley Ka Seme, Brigadier Nomahlubi Sofika, said it appeared as the suspect was waiting for his accomplice from the Eastern Cape to collect the drugs.
The cops stopped a suspicious AUDI near a garage on the N1, and upon searching the vehicle the drugs were discovered.
Sofika applauded the good work done by the Colesberg cops.
She said the arrest is a clear indication that her cluster is not a springboard for criminals who might think Colesberg can be used as a getaway route for drugs.
The arrested suspect is expected to appear before the Colesberg Magistrates court soon.
