Gauteng Traffic Police arrest three suspects in Alberton for dealing in dagga
The Gauteng Traffic Police have arrested three suspects on Thursday 14 Jan, for dealing in dagga in Alberton North near Funny Farm, Ekurhuleni corridor. The three male suspects aged 30, 40 and 44 respectively were arrested for unlawful possession of dagga estimated at a street value of +- R50,000.00.
The suspects were detained at Alberton police station and were expected to appear at the Palm Ridge Magistrate Court on Friday morning to face charges relating to unlawful possession and dealing in dagga.
“The Gauteng Traffic Police will continue to root out all criminal elements within the province. Dealing in dagga or drugs is not acceptable and therefore punishable. These illegal substances are one of the many contributors of crime and has far reaching implications,’’ said Sello Maremane, Gauteng Traffic Police Spokesperson.
“It is therefore critical that we break the demand and supply value chain of dagga in our respective communities. Anyone found in possession of illegal substances such as dagga or drugs must know that the police will not hesitate to deal decisively with them. Lastly, we urge community members to report all criminal elements without fail to ensure the rule of law and order is maintained,” added Sello Maremane.
