MPUMALANGA – A 38-year-old man is due to appear before the Low’s Creek Magistrates’ Court today, Thursday 22 July 2021, on allegations of being in possession of dagga valued at R1 Million. This follows his arrest during an Intelligence Driven Operation conducted at Low’s Creek on 21 July 2021.
According to the report, members from the unit gathered information about a grey Toyota single cab bakkie with one occupant near Low’s Creek involved in an illicit activity. They then mobilised police on duty who spotted the said vehicle, stopped it for a search and they discovered 19 bags which were loaded with dagga weighing about 341,7 kilograms.
Preliminary investigation has since revealed that the suspect is from the Kingdom of Eswatini and apart from the dealing in dagga charge, police indicated that there are possibilities that the suspect may face more charges relating to being in the country illegally.
