Cape Town - A man has been arrested for possession of contraband cigarettes in Bellville, Western Cape police said on Tuesday.

Captain Frederick van Wyk said the 24-year-old was arrested on Monday following a tip-off.

“(Police) spotted a white Mercedes-Benz panel van which drove into the premises of a residence. The driver got out of the vehicle and started unloading boxes,” said van Wyk.

Police confiscated 50 boxes each containing 50 cartons of cigarettes, worth an estimated R310 000 on the street.

The Jordanian man was expected to appear soon in the Bellville Magistrate's Court. - Sapa
