Johannesburg - A 36-year-old woman was arrested in Kimberley in connection with a R6 000 stash of mandrax, police said on Thursday.

She was about to board a taxi from the diamond mining city to Hartswater when police arrested her after a tip-off.

She is expected to appear in the Kimberley Magistrate's Court on Thursday on a charge of possession of mandrax.

The drug was developed as a sedative but is known to be used recreationally, often mixed with dagga.

Kimberley Cluster Commander Major General Jean Abrahams lauded the community's part in the arrest.

“Crime can only be uprooted within our communities when the communities become part of forces that eradicates crime within the neighbourhood,” Abrahams said.
