More narcotics seized as police intensify raids


A suspected drug trafficker arrested in Voi with 327kg of cannabis hidden in his Toyota Prado while travelling from Nairobi to Mombasa is set to be arraigned in court.

Acting on a tip-off, the joint team of DCI and KPS officers erected a roadblock at Ikanga area of Voi, flagging down the 45-year-old driver while in frantic efforts to escape.

“Upon search, 11 gunny bags containing bhang and 963 big rolls of the same unholy herb were found, alongside two extra sets of number plates (KCU 888F & KCV 489R) said the Directorate of Criminal Investigation in a post on X.

The suspect Patrick Odoyo Jabuya was immediately arrested and the cargo estimated at a street value of Ksh 9.8 million seized and escorted to Voi Police Station.

“Legal procedures have been instigated, including the detaining of the vehicle fitted with Reg. No KCP 263K which is believed to be a proceed of the trade” added DCI.
