Cape Town - There are hard times ahead for a randy man caught with R500 000 worth of fake Viagra.

Cops rose to the occasion on Thursday when they caught the 39-year-old suspect with 15 bags stuffed with the little blue pills.

The conman was caught driving down Belgravia Road in Athlone.

He was being closely watched by eagle-eyed officers investigating him for scamming unsuspecting businesses at Mitchell’s Plain Promenade Mall.

Police said he was buying phones with fake proof of payments.

But cops made a surprise discovery when they tracked him down to his Crawford home.

They found thousands of the sex aid pills in the house.

Most of the tablets were not sealed or even in packets

Mitchell’s Plain Police Station’s Brigadier Johan Brand said that the fake tablets are worth at least a whopping half a million rand on the black market.

The suspect will be charged under the Medicines Act which makes it illegal to sell tablets without a licence.

He is due to appear in court next week.
