Free State police say the men were nabbed late on Thursday night.

“On Thursday [at] midnight, members of [the] Ficksburg highway patrol were patrolling the R70 road when they saw a suspicious white bakkie,” Captain Phumelelo Dhlamini said.

“They stopped the vehicle and three males came out and were searched. Members also searched their vehicle and found 176 refuse plastic bag containers stashed with dagga.”

The three men, aged 36, 38, and 47, were arrested and would appear in the Ficksburg Magistrate’s Court on charges of dealing in dagga, Dhlamini said.

A 58-year-old Free State man was arrested after being caught in possession of dagga worth R60 000 last month.
