Cape Town - She was trying to smuggle a large haul of cocaine into Cape Town. But when a 34-year-old woman got off a flight at Cape Town International Airport, it was a random check that stopped her in her tracks.

The woman had arrived on a flight from Johannesburg on Wednesday. After being searched, police discovered a suspicious parcel in her luggage – a box of All-Bran Flakes.

Inside wasn’t breakfast cereal, but over R1.4 million worth of crack cocaine. There were 10 bags of the powder. The woman was arrested.
