Police net 35 stones and 800 rolls of bhang

More than 800 rolls and 35 stones of bhang were seized today by police in an ongoing operation in Kisii county.
County Police Commander Agnes Mudambah said officers from the Quick Response Team (QRT) stumbled on the drugs hidden in a bush in Gesonso, Gucha South Division.
“We had decided to be extra vigilant [during] the Idd celebrations and the result of this vigilance has been seen with the discovery of the drug haul,” she said.
The drugs are reportedly to have been abandoned by smugglers who ran away as officers approached their hideout.
She said the police were still hot on their trail.
“We are following useful clues that could lead to the arrest of the suspects,” she said.
