Limpopo police say in a concerted effort to eradicate the mushrooming of drugs in some parts of the Province, a 62-year-old man was arrested last night during the Intelligence Driven Joint operation for manufacturing and concocting drugs.
Police spokesperson, Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, says a sting joint operation was conducted in the Tzaneen Policing area.
Ngoepe says during this operation, a drug-lab was uncovered in a house within the Tzaneen CBD and subsequently, the suspect believed to be the drug lord was nabbed.
He says in the process of searching this lab, the high quantity of dagga and mushrooms which were in the stage of being processed were discovered.
The estimated value of the recovered drugs is over R500 000.00.
The arrested suspect will appear before the Tzaneen Magistrate Court soon.
