TO GO WITH AFP HISTORY BY IBAR AIBAR AND LUIS ROBAYO A police officer shows a dose of crack and a small pipe to smoke it seized during a raid against micro-trafficking in Cali, Colombia, on June 8, 2011. In Colombia a dose of crack is sold for 500 pesos (USD 30 cents) and a distribution network employing from 15 to 20 people can report around USD 250,000 monthly. In 2010 there were 1813 homicides in Cali --a rate of 80 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants-- from which at least 30 percent can be related to drug trafficking. AFP PHOTO/Luis ROBAYO

They arrested a woman with 34 pieces of cocaine with an estimated street value of R3400.

The two would be charged with drug dealing and appear in court soon. - Sapa
