Dagga seized in WCape

A man was arrested in Uniondale on Monday for possession of dagga with an estimated street value of R2.6 million, Western Cape police said.


The dagga, weighing about 2.6 tons, was found concealed in 73 bags inside a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, which was stopped and searched by the highway patrol on the road between Oudtshoorn and Uniondale, said Captain Malcolm Pojie.

He said the dagga was believed to have been destined for distribution in the Cape Peninsula.

The 49-year-old KwaZulu-Natal man would appear in the Uniondale Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday.
