Three Zimbabwean nationals, aged 32, 36 and 41, have been arrested in connection with the heroin that weighed 10,25kg.
Police in Limpopo have confiscated R2 million worth of heroin at the Beit Bridge border post on Wednesday morning.
Limpopo provincial police spokesperson, Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, said the three suspects were travelling in a truck and were directed through the cargo scanner as part of a routine check by the South African Revenue Services (SARS) at the border post.
He said the suspects were crossing the border from Zimbabwe into South Africa.The scanner revealed a black bag hidden under the bed compartment of the truck.
A field test confirmed that the drugs were heroin.
Ngoepe said all three suspects will appear in the Messina Magistrate’s Court later this week, where they will face charges relating to the illegal possession of and dealing in drugs.
