A fuel tanker ferrying Sh8 million worth of bhang from Ethiopia has been arrested by police at Kasarani.
Detectives attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) nabbed the bhang on Thika road as it was being transported inside a fuel tanker of registration number KBJ 502E.
Kasarani OCPD Peter Kimani told Nairobi News that the tanker’s registration number is fake.
“They hide the bhang inside a compartment in the tanker and this has been taking place for long now,” he said.
Reports also indicate that the crew in the tanker switched the number plates of the vehicle from one point to another to ensure they evaded police as much as possible.
Mr Kimani said the possible markets of the bhang include Kasarani, Githurai, Juja and Nairobi area.
Just two weeks, Mr Kimani led officers in a arresting one of Nairobi’s biggest suppliers of bhang in Githurai 44.
