Nanyuki police have arrested three suspects who were transporting 139 kilograms of bhang estimated to approximately cost Sh.2.8 million which they were transporting using a lorry.

Laikipia East police commander Kizito Mutoro said the 11-tonne lorry was intercepted along Nanyuki-Nyeri highway headed to Nairobi. The operation was coordinated by officers from the Transnational Intelligence Unit based at the DCI headquarters who had been trailing the lorry from Moyale.

“We were tipped off about the truck from Moyale and we found that it had a false extension behind the driver’s cabin where the drugs were put in 62 wrapped polythene papers,” said the officer.
