The Police in the Groblersdal Cluster have conducted a successful joint crime prevention operation as part of the Cluster Operation Fiela II focussing on problematic crimes such as contact, property and other serious and violent crimes in the crime infested areas.

During this operation, a large dagga plantation was discovered in the Roossenekal Policing area through a tip off from members of the community.

The suspect has since evaded arrest, he is still on the run but he is identified and the manhunt is continuing. The dagga trees found are at the estimated street value of over R500 000-00.

The Saps Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba has applauded the Groblersdal Cluster on the job well done.

These are some of the achievements to be acknowledged showing a clear indication that we are winning the fight against the mushrooming of drugs in this Province. Members of the community are still encouraged to continue supporting the Police on information about the existence and mushrooming of drugs including dagga in their areas with the sole objective of declaring this Province a drug free zone, concluded General Ledwaba.
