The man who was arrested by constables Fourie and Liesering after they discovered a hydroponic dagga laboratory on his property.

Members of the EMPD K9 and Intervention Unit (SWAT) arrested a 32-year-old man in Boksburg on January 9 for cultivating dagga at his home.

According to the EMPD spokesperson Chief Supt Wilfred Kgasago, information received from concerned citizens led the officers to the suspect’s house in Beit Avenue, Farrar Park.

Upon entering the house, at about 5.30pm, officers reportedly found the suspect watering and pruning nine dagga plants.

“Over and above these, seven boxes with bulbs used as incubators for dagga and 100 ziplock bags of dagga were uncovered.

“All the equipment and the dagga plants were confiscated and booked in at Boksburg Police Station,” said Kgasago.
