Two suspected drug dealers must have turned green at the gills when police pulled them over outside Moorreesburg yesterday. Inside the car were 242 parcels of dagga weighing 32.5 kg and valued at R32 500.

The men were pulled over on the weigh bridge on the N7 by two constables taking part in an operation to curb drunken driving and drug trafficking. When asked for his driver’s licence, the driver was however unable to produce one.

According to police spokesperson Constable Debbie Alard the men got out of the car, and then threw the keys at the cops and ran off.  Both men were caught.  The vehicle was searched in their presence and the huge stash of dagga – 32 parcels weighing 32.5 kg and valued at R32 500 – was found. The men were charged with dealing in drugs. They will appear in the Malmesbury magistrate’s court on said charge.

The constables were commended by the Milnerton Cluster Commander General Anneqah Jordaan and the Station Commander of Moorreesburg.
