Drug dealers in Gordon’s Bay were dealt a blow on the afternoon of 24 January 2018, at about 16: 45 when police embarked on an intelligence driven operation and searched a residence in Clivia Street.

During their search, they uncovered an illegal hydroponic dagga lab. Various rooms and showers inside the house were filled with dagga plants and fitted with cultivation equipment. Huge amounts of dried hydroponic dagga, dagga plants, lights, fans, pots, plastic containers, dagga oil, potting soil and other items of equipment were seized.

The dagga is valued at a substantial amount.

Three suspects, two men and a woman, ages 24, 25 and 30 years respectively were arrested and, once charged, they will appear in the Strand Magistrates’ court on 26 January 2018, on drug related charges.

The Provincial Commissioner of the Western Cape, Lieutenant General Khombinkosi Jula, praised the SAPS members who were involved in the operation, for removing drugs from the community.
