Concerted efforts by the Outeniqua K-9 (George Dog Unit) has yielded positive results following the arrests of 33 year old suspect, who had been found in possession of a substantial amount of what is believed to be Tik with an estimated street value of about R5M.

The members then continued with a thorough search of the vehicle, and found the Tik that was concealed in black packaging inside the engine bay of the vehicle.
