A Man is expected to appear in court today after he was caught with bags of dagga in his car with a street value of R375000.

This was one of the latest dagga hauls in the province as more of the illegal substance continues to be smuggled into the region.

Police were on patrol in Senekal when they stopped a Toyota sedan with a Gauteng car registration.

Police spokesperson Stephen Thakeng, said: “The police searched the vehicle and dagga was found inside the boot. The 37-year-old man from Sebokeng in the Vaal was arrested.”

Thakeng said the drug was mainly from Lesotho.

“Over the years we have found that the lucrative dagga deals originate from Lesotho where it is grown and harvested. There is a big market here, judging by the number of people arrested for possession,” he said.

Thakeng said drug dealers mix it with other drugs such as cocaine or heroin to make cheaper but stronger drugs such as nyaope.

“What is disturbing is that dagga is sold to school children by the foot soldiers who work for syndicates,” he said.

The man will appear in the Senekal Magistrate’s Court to face charges of drug possession.
