A joint operation by members of the Hawks’ Narcotics Enforcement Bureau (SANEB), K9 and Crime Intelligence Counter Narcotics (CICN), resulted in the arrest of a 25 year – old, Lesotho female national on Wednesday.

A City to City bus from Johannesburg to George was stopped and searched near Sedgefield. About one (1Kg) of Crystal Methamphetamine commonly known as Tik, valued at approximately R250 000, was found concealed in juice and biscuits boxes in the suspect’s handbag.

Meanwhile, in a separate search and seizure operation on Monday, October 9th, a 28 year – old Nigerian international was arrested at the George, Taxi rank. Seven (7) Mandrax tablets and seven (7) gram of Tik to the value of R2 100-00 were seized.

The suspects are expected to appear before the George Magistrate’s Court on October, 13th 2017, to face charges of drug dealing.

The Western Cape Acting Provincial Head of the Hawks hailed the sentences.

“We will continue to discharge our mandate using all resources at our disposal to ensure that the Western Cape is not used as a thoroughfare for illegal drugs.” He said
