Bloemfontein - A 34-year-old man is expected to appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court on Monday after the Parkweg Police’s K9 unit arrested him in the CBD with 70 small packets of Cat powder in his possession.

Acting on a tip-off, the man was spotted waiting in his white WV Polo. When being searched, the K9 police found a travel bag with the drugs.

The man was immediately arrested and taken to Parkweg Police Station. The confiscated Cat has an estimated street value of R10 000.

R620 in cash was also found and confiscated.

“The Parkweg police is making positive inroads in apprehending drug dealers in the inner city of Bloemfontein. We are warning them: Bloemfontein is not a fertile ground for them,” said police spokesperson Constable Wendy Nkabi.
