ON Monday morning, Port Shepstone SAPS acted on a tip-off and intercepted a vehicle transporting dagga from the Eastern Cape to Durban.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid said Warrant Officer Johan Terreblanche from the Port Shepstone K9 unit and Constable Sibusiso Cele from the Port Shepstone 10111 call centre assisted Detective Warrant Officer Abraham Sonnekus from DPCI: Organised Crime Unit, who had received information about the vehicle.

“Shortly after 8am, the car was stopped near the Oribi toll plaza and a 27-year-old male was found to be the driver and only occupant of the car. The car was searched and 53 packages containing dagga were found,” said Wiid.

The dagga was found to have a street value of R360 000. The suspect will be charged with dealing in dagga and will appear in court soon.
