Bloemfontein - Four men have been arrested in Welkom for possessing dagga worth about R2000 on the street, Free State police said on Friday.
“(Police) were busy patrolling in Welkom CBD when they saw two suspicious learners in school uniform. They stopped and searched them and found dagga in their pockets,” said Captain Stephen Thakeng.
The pupils led police to two men, who were found in possession of dagga, and were arrested. Two other men were also arrested.
“The police together with the (two)suspects went to a certain house in Rheederpark where they found two African males: the owner of the rented back room, and another man.”
Police found dagga with a street value of R2400 on the premises.
The four men, aged between 20 and 32, would appear soon in the Welkom Magistrate's Court.
