Cape Town - A 42-year-old Nigerian man appeared in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Monday for alleged possession of stolen goods, Western Cape police said.

He was arrested at the Cape Town International Airport on Sunday, said spokesman Elvis Mahote.

Police seized seven laptops, 64 digital cameras, six video cameras, 256 cellphones, 140 men and women's watches, and seven car radios worth an estimated R550 000, he said.

Mahote said the man's luggage was searched after he was profiled at the domestic departures hall by the anti-smuggling team.

He said one of the items seized had been linked to a theft case. The others were still under investigation.
