On Wednesday, March 16th, a George woman was arrested on the N9 when police discovered cocaine worth R120 000 hidden in oats boxes. Between George and Oudtshoorn, members of the Rural Flying Squad were conducting a vehicle checkpoint.

When a member of the group noticed that the Jungle Oats instant oatmeal cartons had been tampered with, they pulled over the taxi and began searching it. Members discovered mandrax tablets and tik concealed within these cartons when they opened them.

According to Spies, Western Cape police administration praised the members of the Rural Flying Squad for their activities, which guaranteed that those who pose a threat to society’s safety were apprehended.
