Cops arrest two for dagga worth R4-million

By Buziwe Nocuze

Western Cape traffic police arrested two suspects and seized a significant shipment of dagga and counterfeit clothing in Laingsburg in the Western Cape on Tuesday.

“Our officers intercepted a heavy motor vehicle carrying 42 bags of compressed dagga weighing two tonnes and with an estimated value of R4-million,” said the MEC of Mobility in the Western Cape, Ricardo Mackenzie.

He praised the officers who daily make the Western Cape a safer place.

A resident speaking anonymously praised the hard work done by some officers and expressed hope that communities can work with them to end drugs in their areas.

“If residents played their part and reported drug dealers, we wouldn’t be fighting a losing battle. The challenge now is that they are being arrested and getting out to continue selling drugs.” 

He said drugs are the reason for the high crime rate and that drug abusers are not afraid of killing people.

“I know people who have lost family members because of drugs. We need to start reporting them. We are not doing this for the police but for ourselves,” he said.
