Four people, including a female were arrested during police patrol in Delft yesterday for drug dealing.
Captain Joe Wilson says members on patrol noticed a person acting suspiciously when he saw them in Kunene Street Leiden.
“They searched the suspect and found a parcel of dagga hidden into the front of his pants,” said Wilson.
Further investigation led the members to two addresses, one where dagga is sold, and the other one was the storage.
“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.
He says they made another bust in Freedom Farm Informal Settlement where they recovered 31 parcels of dagga and one compressed bag full of dagga, weighing about 12kilograms at a shack.
A female suspect aged 18 was also arrested.
Wilson says the street value of the dagga confiscated is R25, 000.
The suspects aged 18, 25, 25, and 33 are facing charges of illegal possession of dagga and they will appear in the Bellville Magistrate’s Court tomorrow.
