Drug arrest

A suspected drug smuggler arrested at Cape Town airport last week appeared in the Bellville Magistrate’s Court on Friday. The 35-year old woman, who had been on a flight from Luanda, landed on Wednesday September 27. Hawks spokesman Lloyd Ramovha said she had been identified as a drug mule. X-rays had found foreign objects in her stomach and led to the retrieval of more than 60 small parcels of what was believed to be cocaine.The case was postponed to Friday October 6 for a bail application.
