Police followed the scent of dagga that led them to making two arrests.

On September 30 police were out on patrol in Plumer Street, extension 10 when they noticed a large group of people outside one of the residences.

The smell of dagga stained the air, police followed the smell into one of the houses and found a man sitting in one of the rooms, police searched the room and the suspect and found two bankies and a match box concealed amongst some clothing.

The suspect was immediately taken into custody and charged with possession of dagga.
The search didn’t stop there as police continued to survey the neighbourhood and visited one of the houses adjacent to the first house where the arrest took place.

Again police followed the smell of dagga which led them to one of the rooms in the house, inside was a woman who appeared to not be of sober mind. Police searched the room and found seven bankies of dagga which had been concealed among some clothing inside the room.

The woman was also arrested and charged with possession of dagga.
In both cases the dagga was confiscated and booked in at the Witbank Police Station as part of evidence to be used in a court of law.

“As the fight against drugs continues on police remain vigilant and committed to cleaning up eMalahleni,” said Capt Eddie Hall, police spokesperson.
