 Motherwell Cluster police stations on Thursday conducted clean up operations and arrested two suspects.

"During a roadblock held on the N2 opposite Coega, a 23-year-old male was found in possession of seven bags of dagga," police said.

"He hitched a ride on the back of a bakkie coming from East London.

"Indications are that he planned to deliver the dagga at Bluewater Bay, Humansdorp and George."

The dagga weighing 57 kilogram with an estimated street value of about R 17 500 was seized.

He will be charged for dealing in dagga.

Elsewhere, a 29-year-old suspect was arrested during a raid for illegal firearms in the Kwazakele and Veeplaas area.

"He was found in possession of an unlicensed firearm and two rounds of unlicensed ammunition at his shop in Veeplaas," police said.

"He will be charged for illegal possession of unlicensed firearm and ammunition."

Both suspects will be appearing in the Motherwell and New Brighton Magistrates Courts on Friday.
