“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.

Two men, aged 32 and 31, and a 34-year-old woman were arrested, and the vehicle was confiscated.

Fatyela said they would soon appear in court on charges of dealing in drugs and for being in possession of drugs. – Sapa
