Johannesburg - In a sting operation led by the Bela-Bela Crime Intelligence Unit and the Provincial Narcotics Task Team, police seized an estimated R40 000 worth of nyaope. 

A 42-year-old man was arrested for possession of drugs said police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.

He said during the operation, Limpopo police seized 800 sachets of nyaope, also known as whoonga, with an estimated street value of R40 000 as well as R36 390 in cash. 

"The suspect was found to be the main supplier of nyaope to the drug dealers in and around the Bela-Bela and Polokwane areas," said Ngoepe.

He said the fight against drugs in the province has being strengthened by the inclusion of other police units. 

The suspect will appear in the Bela-Bela Magistrate's Court on Monday.
