Man Arrested For 600 kg Marijuana Booty

A 27-year-old man was recently arrested by police in Nyanga after he was found in possession of marijuana (dagga) weighing more than 600kg with a street value of $1 million.

The vehicle had two occupants, Tinashe Tapera who is now in police custody and an accomplice who is still at large.

In an interview with Manica Post, Manicaland police spokesman Inspector Tavhiringwa Kakohwa said:

Police in Ruwangwe received a tip-off from their counterparts in Mutare that there was a car which was transporting 25 sacks of 90kg marijuana from Mozambique to an unknown destination.
