The Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Investigation team successfully intercepted a consignment of dagga worth an estimate street valued of R375 000 on route to George from Eastern Cape.

Two suspects aged 41 and 33 were arrested in possession of about 15 bags cannabis last Thursday on Kokkewiet Street, Conville.

This followed a high speed chase that led to the driver to jump out of a moving vehicle to avoid arrest causing the vehicle to hit the fence on the side of Kokkewiet Street Conville, before it came to a halt.

The duo is expected to make their first court appearance at George Magistrate’s Court on Monday, 4 May 2020.
