The South African Police Service members in Port Nolloth busted a 36 year old man with dagga consignment with an estimated street value nearly R100 000. The suspect was busted on Thursday, 19 September 2019 during an intelligence driven operation by members of Crime Intelligence, K9 Unit, Detectives, Visible Police and Public Order Police.

Intelligence information was operationalised after it was established that a resident of a certain identified house in Sizamele Location in Port Nolloth was dealing in drugs and dagga.

During the search of the suspect’s premises, the members unearthed dagga stashed under the ground. An undisclosed amount of cash believed that the suspect generated through dealing in dagga and drugs was also confiscated.

Another suspect in his early 30’s was arrested and charged with possession of crystal Meth. The suspect’s arrest came after the police conducted stop and searches in the area of Pella.

Both suspects are expected to appear before the Port Nolloth and Pella Magistrates’ Court on charges of dealing and possession of dagga and crystal meth respectively.

The Northern Cape Police Management is delighted by the level of communities’ participation in the fight against crime.
