An estimated R300 000 worth of marijuana was confiscated by the SAPS during a sting operation held in the Copesville area during the early hours of this morning. Two arrests were also made.
The potent marijuana seized totalled an estimated R300 000 street value. Thousands of rands in cash and the trap money used this morning were also confiscated.
It is believed that the drugs are emanating directly from Lesotho. It is also believed that the arrested suspect is alleged to have been dealing in the Greater Durban, Inanda, Kwa-Mashu and Pietermaritzburg areas.
“Drug dealers should always be aware that they can be arrested at any time. Copesville is one of the areas that we are focusing on and we want to assure the community that despite the challenges we experience investigating drug cases we will not loosen our grip on drug dealers in the province and we will continue to invade their space,” said provincial commander Lieutenant General Mammonye Ngobeni.
