Constable Mpho Mashakane, Cleveland SAPS communications officer, said that police officers received information about a man in possession of ivory at the import and export offices in Asia City.

“On arrival members found a man and asked to search his office.

“Police officers found one big ivory horn, two pieces of carved ivory horns and forty pieces of ivory tubes. Police officers asked the man where he found the exhibits but he could not explain,” said Const Mashakane.

Police officers checked the man’s phone and found SMSes where he was offering ivory and rhino horn for sale.

They confiscated the ivory and the cellular phone and arrested him.
