Johannesburg - A 36-year-old man was arrested in Edenvale after he was found in possession of two rhino horns on Friday, East Rand police reported.

Superintendent Andy Pieke said the man first tried to sell rhino horns to police officers in plain clothes in Van Riebeck Street around 14:00.

Police pretended to be interested and went to the man's vehicle, where he kept the horns.

They arrested the man and confiscated the rhino horns valued at R38 000.

He will appear in the Edenvale Magistrate's Court on Monday.
