 A suspected drug mule was arrested at Cape Town International Airport, Western Cape police said on Monday.

The woman, 46, was arrested at 8.30pm on Sunday for allegedly carrying 10.5 kg of tik, with an estimated street value of R3 million, Warrant Officer November Filander said.

She arrived on a flight from Joburg with the drugs in her luggage. Filander said the woman had a criminal record.

“During 2006 she was arrested in Johannesburg for dealing in dagga. She was sentenced in 2007 for seven years, but released after five years.”

She was expected to appear in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Tuesday. – Sapa
