A 27-year-old Zimbabwean woman, living in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, was arrested at Cape Town International Airport on Saturday for being in possession of tik (crystal methamphetamine) valued at more than R1.8 million, Western Cape police said.
Members of the border police based at Cape Town International Airport arrested the woman after she arrived on a flight from OR Tambo International Airport.
The flight arrived at about 10am, spokesperson Captain FC van Wyk said.
“After passengers had collected their luggage from the carousel, the border police members conducted random searches. Members found 8.1kg of tik with an estimated street value of R1.822 million in the woman’s suitcase.”
“She is due to appear in the Bellville Magistrate’s Court on Monday on drug-related charges,” said Van Wyk.[Source: SABC News]
