Three suspects, a female, aged 32 and two males both aged 27 will be appearing before the Orkney Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, 2 November 2021 on a charge of dealing in dagga.
They were arrested in Orkney on Saturday morning, 30 October 2021, after close to 40 kg of dagga was found in the boot of their vehicle.
Colonel Adéle Myburgh of North West Police said it is alleged that the three were stopped at a roadblock on the R30 road, between Orkney and the Vaal River. “Whilst searching the vehicle, 15 black bags containing 39,1 kg dagga with an estimated street value of R117 300.00 were found in the boot of their vehicle. They were immediately arrested for dealing in dagga.”
The Provincial Commissioner applauded the Illicit Mining Task Team for their vigilance and hard work that led to this success.
