Grahamstown police seized dagga worth about R1-million during a vehicle check point on the N2 on Thursday evening.
Police spokeswoman Captain Mali Govender said members of the Grahamstown Highway Patrol stopped an Opel Corsa bakkie travelling from Mthatha towards Port Elizabeth at about 6.30pm.
“On searching the bakkie which had two male occupants aged 24 and 35, they discovered compressed dagga packed in huge bags stacked in the back of the vehicle and behind the seats. A total of 23 bags with a street value of approximately R1-million was seized,” Govender said.
The suspects, who face a charge of possession of dagga, will appear in the Grahamstown Magistrate’s Court soon.
