Four arrested in dagga busts


Four people have been arrested for allegedly being in possession of dagga with a total street value of R25 000, Western Cape police said on Thursday.

Captain Joe Wilson said the police had searched a person in Kunene Street in Delft on Wednesday morning and found a parcel of dagga on him.

Further investigations led the police to two premises in the same street where dagga was stored and sold.

"On their arrival at one of these houses they found 153 parcels of dagga with a total weight of 20 kilograms, openly displayed on the dining room table," said Wilson.

Later in the day, the police followed up on information from the public and recovered 12kg of dagga from a shack at Freedom Farm informal settlement.

The police arrested three men and an 18-year-old women during the raids.

"The total weight for both busts is 32kg with a street value of R25000. The suspects, aged 18, 25, 25, and 33, face charges of illegal possession of dagga and will appear in Bellville Magistrate's Court (soon)," said Wilson.
