SAPSA man, in his late thirties, has been arrested by the Tonga Cluster police for allegedly dealing with dagga. He was arrested by a K9 Unit member after a tip-off that there was a house in Magudu where the dagga was kept. According to the Tonga Cluster police spokesperson, Captain Mzwandile Nyambi, the K9 Unit officer, Constable Ntandane rushed to the suspected house after the tip-off and found a large amount of dagga in that house. A 38 year old man was arrested by the officer after finding the dagga in the house. "The dagga is weighing 29.817 kilogramme and is estimated at R150 000 on street value," added Nyambi. He applauded the work done by both the informant and Constable Ntandane for such a great job and encouraged community members to report suspects to the police than hiding them in their houses. "People must learn to be responsible, giving a criminal a place to hide is irresponsible and similar to keeping quiet while you see something suspicious either wherever you are or at your village. The work done by the informant is what every community member should be doing because that is the only way we can reduce crime in our villages," added Captain Nyambi. The suspect appeared before the Nkomazi Magistrates court the following day and he was reminded in custody. He is expected to appear for bail application soon.
