CAPE TOWN - A 44-year-old woman has been arrested in yet another drug bust at Cape Town International Airport.
She was caught yesterday, allegedly in possession of three compressed packets of tik.
This is the latest in a string of arrests at the airport, in which authorities have netted drugs worth more than R5 million this month.
The police's Frederick van Wyk says the woman was arrested at international departures.
"A female South African passenger was found with three compressed packets, wrapped in brown plastic tape, attached to her person - underneath her clothing. The estimated weight of the drug is one kilogram, with the street value of approximately R25,000."
Earlier this month, a 40-year-old woman, who arrived on a flight from the Middle East, was arrested after officials discovered around three kilogrammes of cocaine that was concealed in a chocolate box in the woman's luggage.
