Ten held in Free State dagga bust
Johannesburg - Eight men and two women have been arrested for possession of dagga with an estimated street value of R750 000 near Ficksburg in the Free State, police said on Monday.
Police received a tip-off about a group of people packing bags of dagga on adjacent farms between Ficksburg and Rosendal on Sunday afternoon, Captain Phumelelo Dhlamini said.
"When the officers arrived, they found them loading 31 bags onto four vehicles from both farms."
Dhlamini said the loads were supposed to be transported to Orkney in the North West. Those arrested, aged between 20 and 49, were expected to face dealing in dagga charges in the Ficksburg Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
