Police raid stall (with more than just food)


It seems that Bloemfontein students on their way to class can’t just buy a sandwich from the food stall in Groenewoudstraat, Universitas.

A 29-year-old suspect was arrested this week on charges of drug trafficking after the police in Parkweg received information about drugs being sold from the food stall in Groenewoudtstraat next to Studentehuis.

The police raided the stall on Wednesday at around 14:00 and seized, among other things, eight large ziplock plastic bags with marijuana.

28 smaller packages, 27 rolled daggazolles, rezla paper and cash were also seized.

The suspect was handcuffed on the spot and will soon make his first appearance in the dock in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court.
