Johannesburg - Two men, a woman and a teenager accused of possession of dagga worth about R1m on the street have appeared in the Groblershoop Magistrate's Court, Northern Cape police said on Wednesday.

The matter was postponed to 20 January when it was heard on Tuesday, police spokesperson Donald Mdhluli said.

Violet Lepebele, 39, Makame Pamabi, 36, Derrick Qwesha, 49, and a 17-year-old youth, believed to be from Lesotho, were charged with dealing in drugs.

The three adults were granted bail. The youth was at a place of safety.

They were arrested on 10 December, when police found 13 bags of dagga in a newspaper delivery truck on the N8 in Groblershoop.
