Two curious Kabega Park policemen inspecting a collapsed wall came across a “plantation” of dagga on Sunday.

Police spokeswoman Colonel Priscilla Naidu said the two were patrolling in Kragga Kamma Road at about 4pm when they noticed a wall that had collapsed due to Sunday’s strong wind.

“While inspecting the wall, they noticed a plantation of trees that looked like dagga plants. The curious officers went into the property and found hundreds of dagga trees growing around a small house and a dilapidated caravan,” she said.

“On further inspection of the caravan and house, 300l of pure alcohol, measuring syringes, dry dagga, dagga oil and containers were found inside. About 300 trees were uprooted.”

Naidu said a 58-year-old woman, who said she lived in the house, arrived while police were on the scene. She was arrested for dealing, possession and cultivation of dagga and is expected to appear in court on Tuesday.

“Being alert and inquisitive to anything and everything is important in the vocation of a police officer,” Naidu said.

    I think that this is appauling for the police to claim this ‘bust’ as an accomplishment and I am disgusted at The Herald at the failure to provide factual infomation in this article first you claim that over a 1000 plants were seized then you state that around 300 were found . Well Done police officers for taking away the only source of natural medication for the Surrounding Penisoners. The woman that you claim is an ‘up and coming’ drug lord is my mother and has been consuming cannabis for the past 30 years due to medical illnesses and i have witnessed with my eyes the very positive effects of the plant. My mother out of the kindness of her heart decided to help the elderly that are in need of the medical properties of the plant, not ever receiving a cent(for the record the reason for the vast qauntity of plants is due to the demand for it from the elderly in the area, does that itself not say something?) . What you have done has not only destroyed the elderly community in that area but left my mother homeless and broken hearted. The least you could of done was post a officer to look after the premises while you dragged her off to prison leaving her dogs there to fend for themselves while there is not even a front wall and due to the fact of nobody being in the house, it was broken into and her stuff were stolen. It is for this reason that I have lost all respect for the police you allow murders and rapists to roam the streets for a R100 bribe but as soon as you come across what you claim is something of value you seize it most likely for your personal gain. Just to Clarify the amount of hatred I have towards the police, If I ever had to come across a police station being set alight I wouldn’t even make the effort to spit on the flames.
