Cape Town -

A 26-year-old man has been arrested in Oudtshoorn after drugs were found in his colon, Western Cape police said on Sunday.

Police, acting on a tip off, stopped a Volkswagen Polo on the N12 between Oudtshoorn and George on Saturday afternoon, Captain Bernadine Steyn said.

The vehicle was searched but no drugs were found. The signs of nervousness prompted police to take the man to a local hospital, she said.

“X-rays were taken that revealed two bullets in the colon of one of the men that were passed spontaneously. A total of 99 Mandrax tablets and four grams of tik with an estimated street value of about R7140 were seized,” Steyn said.

The man would appear in the Oudtshoorn Magistrate's Court on a charge of possession of drugs on Monday. - Sapa
