Tonga police arrested a 42 year old daggafarian who was caught allegedly supplying medical cannabis to inmates at the Tonga police cells.
According to the Tonga police spokesperson, Lieutenant Mzwandile Nyambi the daggfarian works as a cook at Tonga SAPS and the incident occurred during visiting hours on Thursday the 6th of November.
Police were busy with the visitors when the daggafarian cook used the chance to bring the medical marijuana into the cells. Unfortunately one of the police officers who were busy with the visitors saw the inmate with a plastic bag stashed in his pocket.
Nyambi said the official then searched the inmate and found the dagga inside the plastic bag.
