Epping, Western Cape - A 40-year-old man was arrested after he collected a parcel of heroin at a post office in Epping, Western Cape police said on Saturday.

“The contraband which is estimated to be worth in the region of R150 000, was concealed in Indian wrapping and the parcel also contained Indian decorations,” said Lt-Col Andre Traut in a statement.

He said the man was arrested after he collected the parcel - which had been posted from overseas - at Cape Mail post office on Friday afternoon.

“Routine searches are frequently conducted at Cape Mail as the mail system is often used to traffic drugs.”

The man will appear in court in Goodwood on Monday. -Sapa
