Two Malawian men have been arrested after Cape Town Central police and Metro Police pounced on their store in the Cape Town CBD.

Police spokesperson Captain Ezra October says the joint raid held on Tuesday 17 January at 17:15 saw officers search a shop called African Link Rasta store.

Here officers found three kilograms of “higher grade” dagga with an estimated street value of R400 000.

He says some of the dagga was found in the shop but the bulk was found in a rented storeroom.

“A large amount of cash as well as foreign currency was also seized.”

The men were arrested and are expected to appear in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on drug dealing and possession of drugs charges.
