KIMBERLEY- The police in Springbok intercepted a courier service van with drugs in Springbok on Tuesday, 14 February 2024.

The Public Order Police members that were busy with routine crime prevention duties received information of drugs destined to Port Nolloth via a courier service in Springbok.

They operationalised the information and intercepted the courier service van at the Springbok depot and on searching found dagga with a street value of approximately R282 000,00.

The police confiscated the dagga and an investigation enquiry case was opened to trace the source, which is the sender, and recipient of the consignment.

The proliferation of drugs remains a priority for SAPS in the province and drug trafficking and dealing will not be tolerated.
