Durban police on Friday turned down a R100‚000 bribe from a suspected drug dealer caught at a home with an estimated R500‚000 in cocaine.
SAPS spokesman Lieutenant-colonel Thulani Zwane said that the officers from the Provincial Drug Task Team and K9 Unit had spent months undercover infiltrating and observing a drug dealing operation‚ with their work coming to fruition on Friday. In total‚ four people were arrested.
It was in the house that the bribe was offered.
“One of the suspects in the house attempted to bribe the members so that they will release the arrested suspects. She allegedly paid R100‚000 cash to the members‚ but they refused to get involved in any corruption.
