George Serious Organized Crime Investigation members assisted by the Public Order Policing, Crime Intelligence, K9 unit and Eden Cluster Combating Task Team confiscated dagga worth at least R500 000-00 from a vehicle travelling from the Eastern Cape.
The team swiftly reacted on information about a vehicle that was travelling from the Eastern Cape to George transporting dagga. A vehicle matching the description was spotted in Wilderness and police vehicles gave chase.
The suspected vehicle was successfully intercepted before the driver jumped out from the moving vehicle which caused it to leave the road and plunge down into a gorge with a passenger inside who sustained minor injuries.
The joint team managed to seize a consignment of dagga valued at approximately R500 000-00.
The 28-year-old suspect who has since been taken to the hospital for medical treatment is expected to appear in the George Magistrate Court on Monday 15 June 2020, to face charges of dealing in cannabis as well as reckless and negligent driving.
