Police Intercept Bhang In Lamu, Arrest One Suspect

Police intercept bhang in Lamu, arrest one suspect

Coast guard officers on Wednesday intercepted two consignment of bhang at Lamu’s Indian Ocean.

The officers were patrolling the sea at 4 am when they seized the bhang worth over half a million which was destined for the Lamu island.

DCI boss George Kinoti said the officers were on routine patrol in their boat in the Tustiri area, when they noticed a suspicious boat sailing towards Lamu, from Matondoni.

The captain signalled the boat to stop but on sighting the officers, the boat’s controller defied the orders and accelerated towards Tustiri channel.

“What followed was a dramatic chase pitting the sea thugs against the Coastguard vessel,” Kinoti said.As the officers caught up with the two thugs, they navigated their vessel to a mangrove thicket, jumped from the boat to the shrubland and disappeared in different directions.

The officers impounded the boat before discovering the consignment of Cannabis Sativa, carefully concealed in khaki bags.

Moments later as they were towing the boat to Lamu police station, they found one of the suspects who appeared to have lost his escape route, attempting to cross the channel.“Exhausted and without the energy to run from the long arm of the law, the suspect Feiswal Hamadi, 35, surrendered to the officers,” Kinoti reported.

Hamadi is currently being processed at Lamu police station for arraignment.
