Police in Trans-Nzoia seized about 40 kilograms of bhang from Kitale Bus Stage after it was delivered from Western Kenya on Monday.
Working on a tip-off from members of the public, the officers impounded the consignment packed in a sack.
According to the local county commander Ali Ayub, the suspect who was ferrying the consignment managed to escape the police dragnet.
The bhang was stacked in a sack which also contained several bars of soap to avoid being detected.
‘’We got information from the public that someone was ferrying the drug and we managed to seize the consignment but the suspect escaped,’’ said Ayub.
The County Commander lauded the public for divulging information that enabled police to impound the drug.
‘We are asking the public to collaborate with our officers to fight crime such as use of drugs among our youth,’’ said Ayub.
