Bhang worth Sh.5million nabbed

Police  in  Thika  have nabbed 10 sacks of bhang with a street market value of Sh.5million from a house in the notorious  Kiandutu  slums.

The  owner  of  the narcotics managed to slip through the dragnet when he saw the police approaching his house as he  was  offloading the drugs from a vehicle into his house at around 7am.

The  Thika  Police Commander, Beatrice  Kiraguri  said they received a tipoff from members of the public and the area Nyumba  Kumi  association that someone was offloading the drugs into his house and swung into action.

Several  fine  papers for rolling the bhang were also found in the residence.

“We  raided  the  house and managed to nab the drugs. However, the owner on seeing us, fled. Nevertheless, we know  him  and  it’s just a matter of time before we catch up with him,” said the area police boss.

The  security  chief  said that they will not allow bhang trade in the area and warned those involved that their time was up.
