A 37-YEAR-old man was arrested by the police in Galeshewe after 15 bags of dagga with an estimated street value of R310,000 were found in his possession.

Police spokesperson Captain Sergio Kock said the suspect was arrested after police received information about an alleged dagga dealer.

“The Frances Baard District Crime Intelligence and the Kimberley K9 unit followed up on information on an alleged dagga dealer in Galeshewe. On Friday, October 15, 2021, police raided a shack at Nkandla Shanties, Galeshewe and seized 15 bags of dagga. The dagga weighed 61 kilograms and has a street value of approximately R310,000. The suspect will appear in the Galeshewe Magistrate’s Court soon,” said Kock.

He added that the team was applauded for the arrest.

“The Frances Baard district commissioner, Major-General Johan Bean, lauded all members for their continuous efforts in squeezing the space for drug dealers to operate in. The relentless efforts of the members and the valuable assistance of the community are yielding positive results in the eradication of dagga and drugs from society,” said Kock.
