Rustenburg - Two people found in possession of 208kgs of suspected stolen platinum are expected to appear in the Rustenburg Magistrate's Court on Monday, North West police said.

Police saw two suspicious-looking men in a stall in Rustenburg, Colonel Sabata Mokgwabone said on Saturday.

“They searched them and recovered platinum weighing 208 kg and 22 grams of dagga hidden in their bags,” he said.

The men failed to explain where the platinum came from.

They were arrested in Thursday and charged with possession of platinum and possession of drugs.
