A WOMAN, who tried to smuggle dagga into prison while visiting a friend, was arrested on New Year’s Day at the Port Shepstone Police Station.

The man he was visiting was arrested a few days earlier for dealing in dagga. The case was postponed to 13 January.

There were three packets of drugs concealed in a stew, which the woman took to the police station. There were also biscuits laced with dagga that the woman also brought along.

An alert police officer, Sergeant Zama Sikhakhana, thought something was amiss and started searching the cooked stew in the plastic ice-cream container.

“She found three small parcels of dagga, which were wrapped in plastic hidden inside the stew,” said police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid.

She then discovered the biscuits that were laced with dagga leaves. The woman was arrested and detained.

She then paid an admission of guilt of R500. - Supplied.
