Man busted with passports, drivers licences and dagga in Joubertina

Police nabbed a man for possession of suspected stolen property valued at R5 000 and possession of seven bompies of dagga, after acting on information of a drug post in Main Street, Joubertina, over the weekend.

"On Sunday, at around 15:00, police received information of a possible drug post in Main Street, Joubertina.

"Three hours later, police in possession of a search warrant raided a house in Main Street, Joubertina, and seized a car radio and other electronic items valued R5 000, and seven bompies of dagga valued R200.

"Police seized three Zimbabwean passports and three Malawian driving licences, of which their authenticity is yet to be investigated," said police spokesperson, Sergeant Majola Nkohli.

"A 28-year-old man (Zimbabwean national) was arrested."

The suspect is due to appear in the Joubertina Magistrate's Court on Tuesday on charges of possession of suspected stolen property and possession of dagga.

Humansdorp Cluster Commander, Brigadier John Lebok said: "With every person arrested for either dealing or possession of illicit drugs, police are possibly saving a child from drug addiction.

"Residents should also adopt a zero tolerance approach on drugs by continuing to share information about drug posts or drug traffickers via Crime Stop 08600 10111."
