FOUR suspects were apprehended by the Kimberley Flying Squad in connection with dealing in dagga in three separate incidents yesterday. Police spokesperson, Captain Sergio Kock, said the arrests followed after the police conducted sting operations.

“On Wednesday (yesterday) the Kimberley Flying Squad members followed up on information about dagga sales and raided three houses in Galeshewe. Upon searching the first house, police found a green travelling bag and one black plastic bag with dagga inside. Two females, aged between 23 and 26, were arrested. The dagga weighed 26.80 kilograms and has an estimated street value of R200 000,” said Kock.

He added that a 34-year-old man was arrested in another incident after dagga with an estimated street value of R10 000 was found in his possession.

“Police found two black bags and five litre buckets containing dagga, weighing 6.18 kilograms with an estimated street value of R10 000, at the house of the suspect.”

Kock said that in the third incident, a 37-year-old suspect was arrested with dagga with an estimated street value of R5 800.

“All the suspects were charged for dealing in dagga and should be appearing in the Galeshewe Magistrate’s Court soon. The investigation continues,” Kock said.
