He stopped and enquired from the driver who informed him that they have a breakdown and were waiting for the mechanic. Five other males were standing with the driver. He further noticed 6 bales wrapped in tape lying next to the truck. The complainant then drove off and phoned SAPS Swartkops. When he returned to the scene, the truck and the people were gone. When police arrived, they discovered that it was dagga. The total weight of the dagga is 274, 9 kilograms. The dagga was confiscated.
