Detectives at the Directorate of Criminal Investigations have arrested a 27-year-old Ugandan woman suspected of trafficking hard drugs.

The detectives say Bizu Rubi was arrested at a hotel on Jogoo road following a tip-off from a member of the Public.

“She is believed to have been waiting for her Kenyan contact to deliver the drugs (heroin) to him,” DCI tweeted.

According to a Tweet by the DCI, the pellets were carefully concealed as potato crisps.

The suspect was arrested and 30 pellets of the highly addictive drug recovered from her, police say.

She is in police custody awaiting arraignment.
