A Namibian male suspect was arrested for being in possession of mandrax tablets at Ariamsvlei Border Post on Monday around 22h00.
The man, who is a truck driver at OBTE Transport, was found with brown and white mandrax tablets worth over N$120 000.
It is alleged that a police officer saw the truck driver hiding a plastic bag in the nearby bushes before taking his truck for a scan.
He then went back to collect the plastic bag, which lead to his arrest.
This was confirmed by NAMPOL's Deputy Commissioner Kauna Shikwambi in a statement.
Investigation in the matter continues.
