34-year-old man arrested in possession of cocaine in Mombasa


Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI)  arrested a 34-year-old man in possession of cocaine in Mombasa.

Mohammed Bakari was nabbed on the Utange-Shanzu road by DCI sleuths in collaboration with the Transnational Organized Crime Unit (TOCU).

The suspect was intercepted while driving a motor vehicle model Toyota Wish which, upon searching, the suspected drug was discovered concealed in a woven shopping bag wrapped with a clear nylon paper.

The exhibits were secured and samples sent to the government chemist for further analysis where preliminary tests were positive for cocaine.

The suspect is presently in lawful custody and will be arraigned in court on Monday.
