Major drugs busts in WC
Metro Police have arrested both local and international drug smugglers on WC highways.
CAPE TOWN - A man has been arrested near Beaufort West after being caught in possession of drugs worth more than R1 million.
Police officers confiscated Tik and Mandrax at a roadblock yesterday.
The police's Captain Bernadine Steyn says, "The bus that was travelling from Johannesburg to Cape Town was searched and drugs were found in the suspect's backpack."
At the same time, three German men and an Italian woman face charges of drug smuggling after a R1.2 million drug bust near Somerset West.
Metro Police found drugs including hash, cocaine and two wine bottles filled with what is suspected to be liquid MDMA. Some of the drugs were cleverly concealed in secret compartments inside Coca-Cola bottles in their camper van on the N2 Highway on Wednesday.
"The liquid MDMA is bottled in Amsterdam and then transported all over the world inside wine and champagne bottles."
Drugs worth R750, 000 were also found at a Muizenberg premises.
Cape Town city bosses believe they may be linked to a well-known European syndicate.
It's thought the group may be operating in South Africa particular at popular 'outdoor' parties.
The four suspects are expected to appear in court soon.
