On Monday 22 February at approximately 18:20 members of the Mkhondo SAPS Vispol (Visible Policing) Unit received a tip from a member of the public that a huge amount of dagga was being transported at that very moment.
They immediately went to Beyers Compound and intercepted the vehicle and instructed the driver to stop so that they could search it. After further investigation, they found 144.7 kilograms of dagga. The suspect was arrested.
Thank you to the community member who did not just look the other way whilst the criminal went about his business but, did something to prevent the spread of a harmful substance into the community.
Thank you to the members of the SAPS who did not ignore the tip and followed up, leading to the arrest of the suspect.
