REHOBOTH, 12 JAN (NAMPA) - The case in which a Rehoboth couple were arrested for allegedly dealing in Cannabis on 18 November last year continued in the Rehoboth Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.
Lizzet Bock (36), wife of Kallie Bock, has since been sentenced to six-months’ imprisonment after she pleaded guilty on a charge of illegally and unlawfully dealing in Cannabis on the 21 November.
The arrests came after a Namibian Police Force (NamPol) undercover police officer bought five cigarettes of Cannabis from her at Plot 42 in Rehoboth’s Kavukiland neighbourhood.
Forty-three-year-old Kallie on Thursday made his third appearance before Magistrate Salome Bampton and was represented by Christopher Stanley from Stanley Law Firm.
Kallie is facing charges of illegally and unlawfully dealing in Cannabis after the Hardap Namibian Police Force (NamPol) Drug Unit found 195 cigarettes of Cannabis, suspected to be his property and worth about N.dollars 7 995 in the second house they searched.
Kallie told the court during his first appearance last year that a customer came to him and bought five of the special cigarettes and two consignments of Cannabis known as “bankies” with a marked N.dollars 200 note.
He said a few minutes later, Police came to his house and started searching the premises but found nothing before proceeding to the second house.
Kallie said Police ordered him to open the house that he said was not his property but despite him saying that, NamPol opened the door by force and found 195 Cannabis cigarettes.
Kallie pleaded guilty to selling five cigarettes of Cannabis and two bankies, and pleaded not guilty to the possession of 195 cigarettes of Cannabis found in the second house.
The case was on the roll for further investigation and Prosecutor Victor Mutumbulwa on Thursday said investigation is complete.
The case was postponed to 24 April for plea and trial.
Kallie remains in custody.
