Right in the belly of the ‘burbs, hey?
On Monday, the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation’s Narcotic Enforcement Bureau and Crime Intelligence “swooped on a clandestine dagga laboratory in the upmarket suburb of Constantia”.
Oh, the horror of it all.
Here’s the Citizen:
In a police statement on Wednesday, Hawks spokesperson Captain Philani Nkwalase said the joint operating teams conducted a search and seizure operation after receiving a tip-off.
“During the search, the team found cannabis oils, dagga plant materials and seeds, as well as cannabis extracting equipment and chemicals. Computers and the lab equipment, as well as a total of R180,000 in cash suspected to be the proceeds of crime, were also seized and are subject to further investigation,” Nwalase said.
He said investigations were ongoing and no arrests had been made.
Clearly, this didn’t qualify as ‘personal and private use’.

Looks like a reasonably slick operation.
Well done to law enforcement, I guess.
Still, I get the nagging feeling that the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation’s Narcotic Enforcement Bureau and Crime Intelligence might be better served focusing their energy on drugs that actually cause massive societal problems.
