Foreigner nabbed with dagga

A 25-year-old undocumented man from Eswatini was arrested Thursday for possession
of 2,510 kg of marijuana worth over R10,000 near the South African border. The
suspect was spotted carrying a large bag by border police during a routine foot patrol in
Jeppes Reef. Officers searched the bag and found the drugs.

The man did not have valid papers to be in South Africa and was arrested for drug possession and
immigration violations. He will appear in court on Friday. In a separate case, border
police seized a VW Polo with tampered identification numbers at a checkpoint.

The car was taken for further investigation. Provincial Police Commissioner Daphney Manamela
praised the efforts to combat crime in Mpumalanga province.
