A 38-year-old foreign national has been arrested in Cape Town for allegedly selling prescribed drugs in the CBD.
Police say members of the Narcotics Unit conducted an undercover operation in Strand street after receiving a tip-off.
The police spokesperson, Captain FC van Wyk, said “an undercover agent purchased an abortion tablet for one-thousand-rand, leading to the suspect’s arrest. They further seized 260 abortion tablets and 175 Adco tablets worth about 270-thousand-rand.”
The suspect will appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court tomorrow on charges under the Medicine Control Act.
