The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives have taken into custody a man and a woman who were found in possession of cannabis, which is thought to be worth Ksh.5 million on the black market. 

 The drugs were hidden in five sacks when the 29-year-old suspects, Samuel Omondi and Judith Kerubo, were captured on the Keroka–Sotik highway in Borabu, Nyamira County. 

According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the suspects should be arraigned. 

Elsewhere in Tigania East in Meru, the police intercepted a motorcycle rider trafficking 30 kg of bhang on Monday night.

According to DCI, during the 1 a.m. incident, the police had to fire into the air because the rider disobeyed their orders to stop. 

According to the DCI, "The rider ignored orders to stop and revved on, before a gunshot that rented the air interfered with his balance, forcing him to abandon his tools of trade and scamper on foot." 

This occurs amid a national campaign to reduce drug abuse and alcohol consumption.
