Eastern Cape - Two taxi passengers heading for Port Elizabeth were arrested in Grahamstown after they were caught with bags of dagga, Eastern Cape police said on Friday.

The men, 20 and 30-years-old, were arrested on the N2 on Thursday after highway patrollers stopped and checked the taxi and its loaded trailer, said Captain Mali Govender.

“All the passengers were asked to stand with their bags and (there were) two bags that were not claimed by any of the passengers, “ said Govender.

The taxi driver denied knowing to whom they belonged.

“Two passengers assisted the police and pointed out who the owners of the bags were,” said Govender.

The bags contained 16kg of dagga with an estimated street value of around R16 000.

The men were arrested and charged with dagga possession.

They would appear in the Grahamstown Magistrate's Court on Monday. - Sapa
