HAWKS members from Pietermaritzburg Organised Crime Unit (South African Narcotics Enforcement Bureau) conducted a disruptive operation at Bryne Village in Richmond area on Wednesday, September 20.

Members pounced on one of the farms after information was received about a hydroponic laboratory operating in the area.

A search was conducted and members found dagga plants, LSD liquid and hashish with the street value of approximately R260 000. The equipment used was also seized.

Farm owner Russell Galbright (46), was subsequently arrested and charged with dealing in dagga.
