Pretoria - Two men and a woman were arrested for dealing in drugs in Sinoville north of Pretoria on Friday, the Hawks said.

Captain Paul Ramaloko said a South African woman, 26, a Nigerian man, 49, and a Ghanaian man aged 28 were pulled off the road by the Hawks, acting on information.

“Upon searching their vehicle 11 kg of heroin worth over R10 million, and a substantial amount of cash in US dollars and South African rands were seized from their vehicle sealed in a bag.”

A suspected stolen motor vehicle and another amount of money were found at their residence.

They were suspected of dealing in drugs between Pretoria and Johannesburg.

The three are expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday next week.
