KIMBERLEY - The Upington Border police, apprehended and arrested a 48-year-old female suspect on Friday, 26 May 2023 for dealing in drugs. The team received information of a female passenger who is traveling from Johannesburg to Upington who allegedly had drugs in her possession.

The team operationalised the information and obtained the relevant search and seizure warrants and waited for her at the bus stop. On arrival of the bus, the police searched her bags at the parking area and found dagga to the value of approximately R130 000-00. She was immediately detained and charged for dealing in drugs.
