Cape Town - Two women running an organic health foods factory in Cape Town were arrested after police allegedly discovered drugs in their cooler boxes, a city official said on Wednesday.

The city's metro police visited the factory in Kommetjie on Tuesday after receiving information about possible illegal activities, said safety and security mayoral committee member JP Smith.

Allegedly hidden in styrofoam cooler boxes were dagga with an estimated street value of R126 000 and hashish with an estimated street value of R8 100.

The boxes also contained 182 LSD stamps with an estimated street value of R36 400 and a small amount of ecstasy.

Officers found a plastic sealer, two scales and around R5 000 in cash at the factory.

The women, aged 43 and 40, were charged with dealing in drugs.
