Hawks celebrate another drug bust
24 September 2011
The Hawks are celebrating yet another drug busting success. Officers received a tip-off about a man who had smuggled drugs into South Africa via the Komatipoort border post to the East Rand.
The Hawks waited for the suspect, pulled him off the N-12 and searched his car.
Pure cocaine with an estimated street value of over a million-Rand was found hidden in the vehicle’s spare wheel.
The man, believed to be a Mozambican citizen, was arrested. Police will be stripping the car to search for more drugs.
