WESTERN CAPE: In what can be described as a significant blow to the Western Cape drug trade, members of Operation Lockdown II executed an intelligence driven intervention and raided a Kraaifontein residence last night. The residence, which is also utilized as a karate studio was equipped with paraphernalia to cultivate and produce an inventory of cannabis products, estimated at a substantial amount. The calculation of the exact street value of the dagga is delayed by the extensive variety and quantities, comprising dagga plants, dagga cookies, muffins and milkshakes, to name but a few.

Besides the dagga, an amount of R35 000-00 believed to be the proceeds of crime has been confiscated together with 25 small calibre rounds of ammunition for which no license could be produced. Two suspects aged 31 and 33 were arrested and detained until they are due to make a court appearance, where they will face charges for dealing in drugs and the illegal possession of ammunition.         

Unrelated to the above operation, but also in Kraaifontein members attached to the Flying Squad arrested a 33 year old suspect yesterday morning for being in possession of an unlicensed .38 Special revolver. He is expected to make his court appearance in Kuils River tomorrow.
