Two Pakistani nationals were arrested near Sannieshof in North West on Thursday for possession of contraband cigarettes and attempting to solicit a bribe.
Police were watching a storage facility on a farm when two men were seen loading boxes onto their bakkies, said Captain Amanda Funani.
“Police approached them, searched the vehicle and discovered 39 cases of cigarettes with an estimated street value of R300 000.”
One of the men tried to bribe an officer with R2900, said Funani. - Sapa
