TWO NABBED FOR DEALING IN ILLICIT CIGARETTES
If being arrested for dealing in illicit cigarettes with a street value of R147 000 was not enough, two men were also arrested for trying to bribe officers and for selling alcohol without a licence.
This happened on Tuesday, 17 January, in Eastleigh, Edenvale, when members of the #EMPD northern region task team responded to a tip off by a member of the public. The law enforcers found boxes at the store containing the cigarettes, and the alcohol allegedly being sold without a license was confiscated.
The two men, aged 28 and 45, also tried to bribe the officers with an amount of R2 000 and were immediately arrested. They face charges of bribery, dealing in illicit cigarettes and selling alcohol without a valid liquor license.
