JOHANNESBURG - A joint operation between AfriForum, the police and the community has led to a drug bust in Bloemfontein.

It’s understood residents’ suspicions were raised by a vehicle driving around their suburb and called the police.

When the police searched the vehicle, a substantial amount of what’s alleged to be cocaine and heroin were found.

Afriforum’s Ian Cameron says the man carrying the drugs has been arrested.

“The crime intelligence has confirmed that the specific substances have been sold for quite a while and the suspect is still in custody.”
