CT Metro Cops Confiscate Cigarettes Worth R750k In Bellville

Metro Police officers have confiscated cigarettes with a street value of R750,000 in Bellville.

Officers on patrol on Thursday night noticed a commotion behind a light delivery vehicle and when they stopped to investigate, a group ran into a nearby residence.

They found 15 boxes of Richman cigarettes in the back of the vehicle.

The City of Cape Town’s Ruth Solomons said: “None of the persons wanted to claim ownership of the cigarettes or the vehicle, so officers confiscated the cigarettes and put them at Bellville SAPS as abandoned.”
