The police in Kisii have arrested a 42-year-old man who was found trafficking 146kgs of bhang along the Kisii-Migori highway.

In a statement on Monday, July 8 the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) said police officers received a tip of the trafficking and mounted a roadblock at the Iyabe Bomokora area and intercepted a Toyota Land Cruiser TX.

“Having mounted a roadblock at the Iyabe Bomokora area, the officers intercepted a Toyota Land Cruiser TX Reg.No. KDG 508E with two occupants.

But whose driver sped off as the officers closed in for a search.”The move prompted a hot chase, but not for long as the Prado got stuck in a ditch to the disappointment of the determined occupants,” the DCI statement read in part.

The driver of the vehicle managed to escape from the scene into nearby thickets but the law enforcement officers cornered his accomplice Collins Otieno.

The police officers seized six sacks of bhang in the vehicle together with a reflective number plate“Not so lucky though for Collins Otieno, who was cornered and helped to a police car alongside six sacks of bhang that were found stashed in their vehicle.

A reflective motor vehicle plate with the number KDL 841X was also found in a carrier bag,” DCI added.

The suspect was escorted to Suneka Police Station for further processing, while the seized narcotics and the motor vehicle were detained at Kisii Central Police Station as exhibits.

The police have launched a manhunt for the driver of the vehicle.
