A policeman was arrested for allegedly smuggling drugs to awaiting trial prisoners at the Vredendal Regional Court cells, Western Cape police said on Friday.
Captain Frederick Van Wyk said the 35-year-old officer was arrested after police had a man pose as a buyer for the inmates on Thursday.
“The suspect was arrested shortly after the money was exchanged.”
Van Wyk said the officer would appear at the same court on Friday. – Sapa
