Cape Town - A suspected drug mule was arrested at Cape Town International Airport, Western Cape police said on Monday.

The woman, 46, was arrested at 20:30 on Sunday for allegedly carrying 10.5kg of tik, with an estimated street value of R3m, Warrant Officer November Filander said.

She arrived on a flight from Johannesburg with the drugs in her luggage. Filander said the woman had a criminal record.

"During 2006 she was arrested in Johannesburg for dealing in dagga. She was sentenced in 2007 for seven years, but released after five years."

She was expected to appear in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

    What's wrong with Western cape DA supporters,lets hope she does not use Nigerians as scapegoats

      I think it says she was coming from Jo'burg and arrested at Cape Town International. Or are you accusing the "Western cape DA supporters" of doing something right and actually arresting somebody?

    Hang this unrepentant cow

    She was just hustling, tryna get that money since there's no jobs available for ex cons. Rather move weight instead of robbing or killing. That's my take on it

    Stupid drug donkey. How do you really expect to pass airport security with that 'tonnage' of drugs?

    She was the decoy ... and an expendable one at that. Did the cops catch the guys with drugs worth millions on the same or the next plane? Nope, not on your life; they were too busy fussing about the woman.

    What a complete moron! First she is barely out of jail where she did 5 years for drugs and now, newly out of jail, she gets caught with something way worse. This means that she will do some very serious time this time. She has to do the max.

    Lock her up and throw away the key. Her previous punishment obviously didn't have any impact on her. Drug dealers, mules, etc are as bad if not worse than actual murderers!
