NTSA Police nabbed bhang worth Ksh3 million in Emali, Makueni County after a wild chase with the drivers of the vehicle transporting the narcotics.
Emali police were carrying out their normal patrol when they flagged down a Toyota Saloon car, but the driver sped past them.
This caused the police to chase down the car, and this went for about 5 kilometers before the driver of the Saloon car and two other counterparts abandoned their vehicle and fled away.
“Emali police were carrying out daily patrols along the busy highway when they noticed a suspecting vehicle. They stopped it but the driver sped off approaching Mombasa direction, something that prompted police to chase them,” Makueni Administration Police Commander Joseph Ole Naipeiyan said.
Police recovered 6182 roles of bhang which are believed to have been on its way, being transported to Mombasa.
They also recovered a mobile phone in the vehicle which is going to be used to trace the runaways suspects.
The vehicle was towed to Emali Police Station and police are searching for the owner of the vehicle through the National Transport and Safety Authority Portal.
