Nowhere to hide as driver and turn boy are nabbed by detectives loading bhang worth 12 Million in a Mercedes Benz Actros truck in Malindi - Someone snitched on them (PHOTOs).

Sunday, June 9, 2024 - The Anti-Narcotics Unit (ANU) Malindi yesterday apprehended two suspected traffickers (a driver and his turnboy) and seized over 429kg of bhang estimated to be worth Sh12 million on the streets.

In the operation conducted jointly with their ANU Mombasa counterparts along the Mariakani-Mavueni road, the officers responded to a tip-off that a Mercedes-Benz Actros KAY 269J/ZC was about to become a vessel of vice, poised to transport the illicit cargo to a location shrouded in mystery.

 The officers swiftly followed leads to the truck, ambushing the unsuspecting duo at an open field while flexing muscles in readiness to load seven sacks of the prohibited herb.

The 28-year-old driver identified as Joseph Nzomo and his accomplice Auress Godfrey, 27, were assisted to a police car along with the seized narcotics and escorted to Mariakani Police Station where the truck was also detained.

Traffickers and peddlers are being warned to shun the illicit trade and consider venturing in other lawful income-generating projects before the long arm of the law catches up with them and puts them away in prison facilities.
