Police seize 209 stones of bhang in Kwale

Police have arrested two drug traffickers including a woman and seized 209 stones of bhang with a street value of S00, 000 in Maganyakulo village, Matuga Sub-county, Kwale County.

Acting on a tip-off from members of the public, police raided the house of one of the suspects, Faith Akinyi where they found the drug hidden.

The suspect was arrested along with her accomplice, Salim Swaleh, according to area Deputy County Commissioner, Mr. Benson Maisori.

Mr. Maisori said the two were caught while preparing to ferry the drug to Likoni, in the neighbouring Mombasa County.

He urged locals to continue exposing lawbreakers so that the fight against crime can bear fruits.

The war on crime cannot be left to security agencies alone hence the need for wananchi to also play their part by volunteering information on suspicious characters for action to be taken against them, said Mr. Maisori.

He said the suspects who are being detained at the Kwale Police Station will be taken to court once investigations were complete.
