Johannesburg - Police seized 198kg of dagga when they searched a Mercedes-Benz on the R51 between Mthatha and Port St Johns on Wednesday, Eastern Cape police said.

Superintendent Mzukisi Fatyela said police stopped the Mercedes-Benz during a stop and search operation at about 04:00.

"Police found 39 bags of dagga in the boot of the vehicle and on the back seat. It was covered by a blanket."

He said the street value of the dagga was R198 000.

Two men, aged 32 and 31, and a 34-year-old woman were arrested, and the vehicle was confiscated.

Fatyela said they would soon appear in court on charges of dealing in drugs and for being in possession of drugs.
