The fight against drug dealing and distribution was this week taken to another level when two suspects were arrested and large quantities of dagga confiscated during the intelligence driven operations.

These targeted operations were simultaneously conducted in Polokwane and Groblersdal policing precincts. Police followed up information that led them to different locations where the following arrests and confiscations were made:

In Groblersdal, a 30 year old man was arrested and large quantities of dagga with the estimated street value of R500 000 and sets of different motor vehicles number plates were seized.

Preliminary police investigations revealed that the suspect is supplying these drugs around Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces.

Meanwhile, the Provincial Crime Intelligence and the Detectives conducted a joint operation and successfully tracked down a 35 year old suspect dealing in dagga at the taxi rank near Savannah Mall within Polokwane CBD.

During this operation, the following confiscations were made: A large amount of dagga with the estimated street value of R50 000.00, R40 800.00 in cash and a VW Polo.

Both suspects will soon appear before the Moutse and Polokwane Magistrates’ Courts respectively, to face charges of dealing and possession of dagga.

The Provincial Commissioner of the SAPS in Limpopo, Lieutenant General Nneke Ledwaba has commended all members for the well-co-ordinated joint operations that led to these positive results.

“These arrests and seizures will go a long way in ridding this province of the scourge of drug-related crimes”, said General Ledwaba.

The Police investigations are still continuing.
