Cape Town – A nervous motorist who didn't have a driving licence has been arrested after drugs valued at R22 000 were found hidden in a secret compartment in the undercarriage of a VW Polo in Gordon's Bay.
"Last night, K9 Xena sniffed out drugs valued at R22 000 hidden in a secret compartment in the undercarriage of a VW Polo," City of Cape Town Metro Police spokesperson Ruth Solomons said on Thursday.
"Officers had stopped the vehicle on Sir Lowry Road in Gordon's Bay. The driver didn't have a valid licence and appeared nervous, prompting the search.
"Thanks to the K9, her handlers recovered a scale, 114 grams of tik and 52 mandrax tablets. The suspect was detained at the Gordon's Bay SAPS."
Earlier in the evening, during a sweep of an abandoned building in Parow, K9 Troy found 19 bankies of tik, 50.5 mandrax tablets and a round of ammunition, Solomons said.
