Three people, among them a 67-year-old man, have been arrested in possession of several rolls and stones of bhang worth over Ksh.120,000 at Njuki-ini in Gichugu, Kirinyaga County.
Confirming the arrest, Gichugu sub-county Police Commander Anthony Mbogo said James Mwaniki, 67, was cornered in his house with 20 kilograms of bhang.
The other two suspects; Alexander Muriuki (28), and Peter Muchiri (35), were each arrested with 19 rolls of bhang.
Mbogo said the three suspects were nabbed following a tip off by members of the public that they had been selling and distributing bhang in Gichugu sub-county.
The police boss said the three will be arraigned before the Gichugu Law Courts, further warning that a crackdown will continue on drug peddlers in the area.
