Cannabis cultivating farm discovered in Paarl
The Western Cape’s flying Squad arrested 25 suspects on Friday, after they discovered a cannabis cultivating farm in Paarl. The police’s Andre Traut says officers discovered and seized cannabis plants and a large quantity of prepared cannabis ready for the market.
The suspects, aged between 18 and 55, are set to appear in the Paarl magistrates Court on Monday.
‘’Due to the substantial quantities, the estimated value of the drugs is yet to be determined. While the suspects are awaiting their court appearance scheduled for Monday in Paarl to face a charge of dealing in drugs, members of our Provincial Detectives are probing the circumstances surrounding the matter. More arrests could be made as our investigation unfolds,’’ said Colonel Andrè Traut.
The Western Cape Police Commissioner, Lt Gen Thembisile Patekile commended the units responsible for the operation and issued a stern warning to drug dealers that their illegal trade will remain high on our policing priority list.
