Johannesburg - Police seized 198kg of dagga when they searched a Mercedes-Benz on the R51 between Mthatha and Port St Johns on Wednesday, Eastern Cape police said.

"Police found 39 bags of dagga in the boot of the vehicle and on the back seat. It was covered by a blanket."

He said the street value of the dagga was R198 000.
