Mbombela - A woman was arrested in Mpumalanga, on Sunday for smuggling hashish from Mozambique to South Africa, the Hawks said.

The police unit received a tip-off about the activities of the 32-year-old woman and set a trap, spokesperson McIntosh Polela said on Monday.

A Hawks agent posed as a customer and bought a kilogram of hashish from her. She was arrested a few days later with 8kg of hashish with a street value of about R800 000 in her possession.

Fifty packets of contraband cigarettes were also seized.

The woman was expected to appear in the Mbombela Regional Court on Thursday.
