Alcohol with an estimated value of R120 000 has been confiscated from an illegal supplier in Gugulethu, Cape Town police said today.

Three police van loads of alcohol were confiscated and the owner, who supplies various shebeens in the Gugulethu area, was arrested yesterday at about 10am, said Captain Elliot Sinyangana.

The owner did not have a licence to supply the alcohol.

The dagga has an estimated street value of R36 000.

The woman faces a charge of possession of dagga.
