Anti-Narcotics police have arrested two people in Buru Buru area, Nairobi, in the latest drug trafficking crackdown in the city.

Police say the operation was done in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.

In the August 17 raid, the detectives recovered 18 pellets of narcotic drugs, money in different currencies, three test tubes, a digital weighing machine and ID card belonging to one of the suspects.

“Also seized during the 6am raid were wads of cash in Kenya shillings and foreign currency, believed to be proceeds from drug trafficking. The cash included $12,601 USD, €15 Euros, Sh509, 495, Tsh24,000 and 10,000 Angolan Kwanza. Two suspects Curtis Muli and Teresa Achieng were also arrested during the raid,” police say.

 The two suspects are being held at Muthaiga police station pending arraignment.

Their arrest comes days after anti-narcotics detectives recovered bhang weighing 466 kilograms and Sh13 million in cash.

The raid was staged by a team of officers from a transnational organised crime unit who raided a store in the Kariowa slums Ngara area owned by a known drug trafficker.
