DAGGA, weighing 2,961 kg with an estimated street value of R4 400 was confiscated by members of the Galeshewe Crime Prevention Unit during a search at a Club 2000 house last Thursday (28/05).

According to Sgt Majang Skalkie of Corporate Communication in Galeshewe, members were doing routine patrols when at about 11:45 they received a tip-off of dagga being sold at a house in Club 2000 in Galeshewe.

“After searching the premises, police confiscated four plastic bags of dagga hidden inside an old television set,” said Skalkie.

One suspect, aged 21, was arrested and charged for dealing in drugs.

In another incident, two suspects were arrested on Wednesday (27/05) at about 18:25 by members of the Kimberley Task Team.

Police members were doing routine patrols when they once again received information about drugs at a house in the Witdam shanties in Galeshewe.

They searched the house and recovered 27 straws of dagga weighing 624 grams with an estimated street value of R178.

A firearm and ammunition were also seized.

The suspects, aged 27 and 31, were charged for possession of an unlicenced firearm, possession of ammunition and dealing in dagga.

All the suspects that were arrested will appear in court tomorrow
