Johannesburg - Two men have been arrested for allegedly selling dagga to school children in Klerksdorp, North West police said on Monday.

Police spokesperson Thulani Ngubane said the Hawks followed up on a tip-off and arrested a 23-year-old man on Sunday.

"He then took them to a house in Jouberton where another suspect was arrested and dagga with a street value of R5 000 was found inside a cooler box."

The two would appear in the Klerksdorp Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

"There has been a growing concern from the community that people sell dagga to school children. Parents, teachers, and pupils must report any suspicious people seen around school premises," Ngubane said.
