Black plastic container full of heroin was found in Mbombela on Tuesday. The street value was estimated at R2 million.
According to the police spokesperson Brig. Leonard Hlathi, the container was found by one of the officials who worked alongside the road.
“It is further suspected the heroin may have been thrown by one of the passengers who feared being caught by law enforcers at the roadblock. Furthermore, the police discovered a bag that contained a considerable amount of marijuana in a luxury bus which was on its way to Gauteng and it was reportedly from Mozambique,” Hlathi said.
The officers have blocked the road as part of Easter road safety campaign.
