KZN cops bust hydroponic dagga lab in plush suburb

KwaZulu-Natal police swooped in on a hydroponic dagga lab in the heart of the upmarket suburb of Westville on Thursday morning.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane said, through astute intelligence, the eThekwini Inner and Outer West clusters descended on the property at 06:00.

"They entered a house on Meerut Road where they found three rooms with hydroponic dagga labs. There were about 50 plants of dagga at the scene."

Zwane said two suspects, aged 41 and 32, were found in the house and arrested.

"Police are still at the scene. The value [of the dagga] is unknown at this stage."
