Police arrested two men for drug possession and another for attempting to bribe officers in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

Colonel Jay Naicker said a 42-year-old man was arrested after he was found with hashish yesterday.

He said police found the drugs in a fridge at a shop in the city centre.

A 52-year-old man, who was the owner of the shop, was arrested after he offered police a R10 000 bribe, to not arrest the other man.

Police were then led to Yellowwood Park where a 41-year-old man was found in possession of 6kg of hashish.
Naicker said the drugs had an estimated street value of R50 000.
