Breaking… Jeffreys Bay police members arrested two 36-year old suspects yesterday, 9 March 2015, on charges of illegal possession of dagga and the cultivation of dagga plants. The arrests were made during an intelligence-driven operation at a residential home in Noorsekloof Street in Wavecrest, Jeffreys Bay.

 SAP members received valuable information and obtained a search warrant for the premises where they made the discovery. Almost 1kg loose dagga was found stashed inside a fridge. Several plants as well as the equipment to cultivate the plants were seized on the premises.

The value of the dagga and the equipment was estimated at about R20 000. The suspects are both due in the Humansdorp Magistrate’s Court tomorrow, 11 March.

The Cluster Commander of Humansdorp, Brigadier Neil Jantjies, congratulated the members involved and said police in Humansdorp Cluster will continue with their fight against the illegal drug trade. ”They act against those committing this type of crime.”
