Police in Likoni Mombasa have recovered 1650 rolls of bhang in a house at Ujama area in Shikaadabu.
While acting on a rip-off from members of public, the police raided a self contained house at vijiweni village along Barabara ya Mchanga that’s said to to be operating as a centre for bhang peddlers where they recovered 1650 rolls of bhang with an estimated street value of over 2M.
Likoni sub-county police chief Timothy Muasya said they also arrested two suspects.
“We’ve also arrested two female suspects and will be arraigned tomorrow.we will seal all loopholes used by peddlers to sneak bhang in Likoni. They better look for other businesses to do” Said Muasya.
The area police boss also urged youths to shun drugs and substance abuse as the society was expecting them to take up leadership positions in future.
“Let every parent keep his children away from drugs. It’s a trap by selfish individuals interested in making money without the care of the future of our youths.” He added.
He however thanked residents for sharing information with police saying they will increase vigilance and will scale up the raids going forward to ensure all dealers of the illegal leaves are brought to book of justice.
Residents who gathered Inuka police station to witness the incident lauded the operation, urging police officers to also target other areas suspected to have been introducing school children, especially boys, to bhang and criminal gangs.
Angeline Mwambingu, 37, and Joyce Mureith,28, are expected to be arraigned in court tomorrow to face charges for trafficking in Narcotic drugs.
