Three people were arrested when more than 500kg of dagga was found in their bakkie on the N2 near Mtubatuba, KwaZulu-Natal police said on Monday.

Captain Thulani Zwane said patrolling police pulled over the bakkie and searched it at 1.30am on Saturday morning.

“ 1/8Police 3/8 found empty beer crates loaded at the back of the bakkie and the members thought it was strange that they were conveying empty beer crates and decided to conduct a thorough search of the vehicle.

The men, aged between 16 and 45, would appear in the Mtubatuba Magistrate's Court soon. - Sapa
