“Once charged, they (the suspects) are expected to make a court appearance in the Worcester Magistrate’s Court on a charge of dealing in drugs. The circumstances surrounding the case are now being investigated by the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigations.”

SA Trucker urges truckers to be vigilant during this period towards the festive season as a lot of contraband will be moving places. Truckers should resist the urge to make a bit of extra cash because it may land you in jail.
