In a statement on Friday, police said they received information about illegal activities taking place on the premises, which they raided on Thursday.
“Upon searching the premises, police uncovered a dagga lab. A total of 400 dagga plants, large quantities of dried cannabis, cannabis oils that were ready for distribution, as well as equipment for manufacturing and processing cannabis were seized by police,” said police spokesperson Colonel Thembeka Mbele.
