Police nab drugs as suspects vinish in a thicket

Police yesterday recovered a consignment of drugs believed to be cannabis sativa, that was destined for the coastal city of Mombasa.

The recovery that was made last night followed a chase pitting police officers car, against a car with two occupants – of a silver Toyota Premio, registration number KAV 214D, that was ferrying the drugs.

This happened after the vehicle that was moving at a high speed was stopped by the police officers who were manning a roadblock at Kanga area. However, the driver of the Toyota Premio car defied police orders to stop, which prompted the law enforcers to also start the chase.

Nonetheless, the chase did not last for long as the Toyota Premio veered off the road, hit a tree and landed in a ditch a few kilometers away. The two occupants immediately disembarked from the car and fled into nearby thickets inside the Tsavo national park.

The car has since been towed to Mtito Andei police station as a manhunt for the two suspects continues. Coastal town of Mombasa has long been the safe destination of all drugs that are come from different parts of the country, and even from abroad. All successive governments have tried to nip the crime that seems to flourish at the coast to no avail.
