The stop and search also resulted in the arrest of six people who were in possession of dagga in Etete, Shaka’s Head and Shayamoya.

“Dagga is one of the biggest problems we have in our area and there are many people that plant dagga in their yards, either they smoke it or they want to sell it.

“We urge them to stop because we will be arresting them,” said Umhlali SAPS captain Vinny Pillay.

Three others were arrested for dealing in liquor without a license.

He further said the police were planning weekly operations to crack down on people who are selling liquor without  a license.

They will randomly visit all the places where liquor is sold, to check if the license is being renewed and all the rules are being followed.

To report anyone who selling liquor illegally or breaking the liquor licence rules, contact Umhlali SAPS at 032-9479900.
