Five dagga peddlers have been arrested in Thornton, Cape Town in a tattoo profiling operation.

Now police in Thornton, Cape Town are targeting any person with a star tattoo.
“Thornton residents are warned to stay away from people with a star tattooed on the left side of their neck as these people may be involved in drug dealing.”
