On June 13, members from the K9 unit (Johannesburg Cluster) were patrolling Moffat View and South Hills when they received a complaint regarding illegal drug activity in Coalbroak Street, South Hills.

Upon arrival at the address they found an unknown male standing inside the premises. They introduced themselves and explained why they were there. The man indicated to the police that he had dagga on him and invited the police onto the premises.

The man went to the entrance and picked up a baby-food bottle from the window sill and handed it over to the police. Inside the bottle were small black bags of dagga. The man was arrested for possession of dagga and taken to the Moffat View police station.
