Police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana says the 41-year-old man from Bothasig sold cocaine worth R15 000 to an undercover cop on Wednesday.

“In our quest to rid our communities of drugs that threaten the future of the youth, a joint operation was conducted by members from Provincial Detectives and Bothasig SAPS," says Rwexana.

“The operation bore fruit when it led to the arrest of a 41-year-old man after he had sold cocaine, valued at R15 000 to one of the police members, who was posing as a buyer.”

The suspect will appear in the Cape Town Magistrates' Court on Monday on a charge of dealing in drugs.
