A man’s alibi went up in smoke this morning when he was caught with a large amount of dope. The man, a 20-year-old foreign national residing in Du Noon, was hiking along the N7 in the direction of Atlantis when two Table View cops saw him.

According to a police spokesperson for Table View police Constable Hlangi Tayi Tayi and Constable Daryll Vink were patrolling the N7 at 11 o’ clock this morning when they saw the man; they stopped to tell him that he was not allowed to walk or hike on the side of the National Road. When they took his backpack in order to search it, he ran off.

The policemen caught the man quickly and opened the backpack.  Inside they found “two large bags wrapped in brown tape containing compressed cannabis, with an estimated street value of R6000.”
