Polokwane - Two Nigerian men and two South African women have been arrested in Polokwane for possession of cocaine, Limpopo police said on Sunday.

The men were pretending to be mechanics, said Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.

The four were arrested on Friday when 200 grams of cocaine, with an estimated street value of R100 000, was found in their possession

Mulaudzi said the police had received information that there was a "suspicious" parcel which had been posted from the United Kingdom.

Police tracked the parcel, which was a Porsche lightbulb in a box, addressed to a 21-year-old South African woman. The cocaine was inside the lightbulb.
