With the growing trend of illegal hard drugs deals, peddled in South Africa, the country’s police has fortified its vigilance in rooting out the kingpins.
This resolve led to the rounding up of two women traversing Beaufort West, in the Western Cape Town with tik, having an estimated street value of R6 million.
According to Western Cape Town police spokesman, Lieutenant colonel Andre Traut:
“The members were busy with roadblocks when they spotted a suspicious taxi minibus which they pulled over. With the search that ensued they discovered two cases filled with 5.4 kg of tik in the one and 12.25kg of tik in the other one.
“We have reason to believe that the suspects were transporting the drugs for drug dealers‚”
After the discovery, the suspects were billed to appear before the Beaufort West Magistrate court.
