Grassy Park police made a bust to seize dagga plants with an estimated street value of R10 000 in 8th Avenue, Grassy Park at the beginning of the month.

Grassy Park police spokesperson Warrant Officer Wynita Kleinsmith says two police officers were performing crime prevention duties in the area on the afternoon of Tuesday 3 January when they received information relating to dagga trade and the growing of dagga plants.

“On arrival police found three suspects – a woman aged 22 and two men aged 29 and 33 – at the house. The premises were searched and they found 29 large dagga plants growing in the backyard with an estimated street value of R10 000. [They also found] two large dagga bags with an estimated street value of R1000 and 10 bankies of dagga with an estimated street value of R2000,” Kleinsmith says.

Counterfeit takkies, valued at R5000, five cellphones and an undisclosed amount of cash were also seized during the bust. The three suspects were arrested on charges of cultivation of dagga and dealing in dagga and have appeared in the Wynberg Magistrates’ Court.
