Zimbabweans arrested in SA for possessing heroin worth R2 million

South African police spokesperson for Limpopo province Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo  confirmed that they arrested Aaron Kasirori (36), Tendai Chaparadza (41) and Tafadzwa Moses Magurira (32) after they intercepted their truck which was carrying 10kg of heroin worth more than R2 million smuggled through Beitbridge Border Post.

Said Mojapelo:

We arrested three Zimbabwean nationals on Thursday night for possessing suspected narcotics (heroin) weighing 10,25kg and valued at R2 050 000. The suspects were arrested soon after their truck was directed to the South African Revenue Services (SARS) cargo scanners for routine check, leading to the detection of the drugs hidden under the bed compartment. The substance tested positive through the heroin testing device and the contraband was subsequently confiscated.

The Zimbabwean trio appeared at Musina magistrate’s court on Friday facing charges of dealing and possession of illegal drugs and were remanded in custody to September 1.
