Police arrested five suspects and seized at least 115 bags of dagga (cannabis) being transported from Eastern Cape to Cape Town on Sunday, a report says.
According to IOL, the bags of cannabis were in refuse bags that were placed in a trailer, which was attached to a taxi cab.
The five suspects, aged between 27 and 41, were arrested for dealing in dagga.
This came just a few weeks after a 27-year-old man was arrested after police discovered what they described as a “bakkie-load” worth of dagga in Gugulethu’s Tambo Village.
Police found a number of dagga trees being dried with a heater, as they followed up on information about drug dealing at a house in the area.
In another room, the officers found the suspect with a substantial amount of dagga and a scale.
“He was busy weighing and packaging dagga for distribution,” police said.
The man was arrested for dealing in, and possession of drugs.
