News: Suspect arrested in Kraaifontein with a large quantity of dagga

Western Cape: Our efforts to address the drug trade in this province have led to the arrest of a 42-year-old female who was apprehended in possession of 125.50kg of dagga in Kraaifontein.

Kraaifontein SAPS members were busy with routine crime prevention patrols at around 02:00 this morning when they spotted a suspicious Hyundai IX35. They gave chase but the vehicle was abandoned by the driver. They followed up information and found the driver at a house in Nkani Street, Wallacedene. The premises was searched and three big bags and three smaller bags containing dagga with a street value of more than R60 000-00 were discovered. The suspect was arrested and detained on charges of dealing in dagga.

Later it was discovered that the suspect was previously convicted on a Kraaifontein case for dealing in drugs with a ten year conviction currently suspended for five years. The suspect will appear in the Kuils River Magistrates Court once she has been charged.
