A 36-year-old motorist has been arrested for the possession of dagga by Mitchell’s Plain Cluster officers during an operation in the Steenberg policing precinct on Wednesday 12 October.

Steenberg police spokesperson Warrant officer John Bartlett says officers were busy with a vehicle search in Military Road, Lavender Hill. “[Officers] pulled over a white Nissan Almera and searched it in the presence of the driver. A plastic bag containing 105 parcels of dagga which weighs 94 kg was found in the boot,” he says.

Bartlett says Steenberg police will continue clamping down drug related crimes and will also continue with their zero tolerance approach in the prevention of any crime.
