ANYONE hoping to smoke an illegal marijuana joint in Jeffreys Bay this weekend may struggle to find supplies after police operations earlier this week.

Some 37 dagga trees reaching 1.5m in height and 120g of loose dagga were confisca-ted in the area, says police spokesperson Lieutenant Gerda Swart.

According to Swart, the Humansdorp K9 Unit and members of the Jeffreys Bay Police arrested a 47-year-old male at his home in Blombos Street on February 23 after following-up on information received from the pu-blic.

Swart says the value of the dagga confisca-ted must still be determined.

The man will appear in the Humansdorp Magistrates Court today.
