Johannesburg - Two stolen vehicles and dagga worth an estimated R2m were discovered at a house in Soshanguve north of Pretoria on Sunday, police said.

Spokesperson Captain Pinky Tsinyane said police were acting on a tip-off when they raided the house at 04:00.

"In the main house there were about 85 bags of dagga, which were packed in different rooms, she said.

The cars, a Toyota Hilux and Toyota Fortuner had been reported stolen at the Wierdabrug and Brooklyn police stations.

The main house, which allegedly belongs to an old man who moved out due to ill health, was deserted when police arrived, said Tsinyane.

A 23-year-old woman who occupies an outside room was taken in for questioning.
