Still in Letlhakane, Maphephu said two men aged 32 and 19 were also arrested at Thalamabele after their vehicle was stopped and searched and found with dagga estimated to weigh 0.1 grams.

“It was in a small plastic and a ready made rizzla,” he said.

“Drugs are finding their way in our policing area as dealers have a feeling that there is money in Letlhakane because of the mines,” said a worried Maphephu.
