LIMPOPO – A 42-year-old woman was yesterday morning at about 08h00, arrested by the police at a roadblock along the N1 road between Beitbridge and Musina after she was found in possession of explosives.
The police stopped a grey Toyota Corolla with Limpopo registration numbers traveling towards Musina. The vehicle was then searched and was found carrying three bags full of 496 units of explosive blasting cartridges in the boot.
A preliminary probe conducted by police members at the roadblock indicated that the explosives allegedly belonged to the woman who was a passenger in the said vehicle and was apparently smuggled into the country across the borderline. The woman initially mentioned she was carrying tins of Cobra polish and that she was taking them to Johannesburg. She was then immediately arrested.
The suspect will appear in Musina magistrate court on Wednesday, 19 August 2020.
