A 32-year-old man from Tambo Village in Manenberg was arrested last Tuesday afternoon for possession of and dealing in drugs.
The arrest comes after Manenberg police followed up on information received from the public, which led them to an address in Mcosana Road.
Upon searching the premises, police found 33 parcels of compressed dagga in neatly vacuum-packed parcels. Each parcel is valued at R1000.
A case of possession of and dealing in drugs has been opened for investigation. The suspect appeared in the Athlone Magistrate’s Court on Thursday morning and was released on bail. He is due for his next court appearance soon.
