CAPE TOWN - Western Cape police are trying to determine whether there are any links between two dagga labs discovered near Milnerton.

On Thursday officers found dagga with an estimated street value of R20 million at a warehouse in Mansell Road, Killarney Gardens.

Equipment used to grow the plant was also seized.

Just hours later officers discovered a smaller dagga lab in the same area.

The police's November Filander said two suspects have been arrested for the first incident.

"We also found sophisticated equipment used to manufacture these dagga plants. Two suspects will appear in the Bellville Magistrate's Court on charges of manufacturing dagga."
