2012-05-03 15:14

An elderly Free State woman will appear in the Tseseng Magistrates Court next week for the alleged possession of nearly 100kg of dagga.

The 69-year-old woman was arrested last Wednesday night after a tip-off from residents of Tseseng village, near Phuthaditjhaba.

Police spokesperson Sergeant Mmako Mophiring said members of the police’s dog unit, the K9 Unit, searched her house and found six bags of dagga hidden in one of the rooms.

The 98.5kg dagga has an estimated street value of R130 000 and was confiscated by police.

She was released on R500 bail for dealing in an illegal substance after appearing at the Tseseng Magistrates Court last Thursday.

The woman, whose name Mophiring was unable to provide, is due back in court next Thursday.
