By Lynn Kolongei | October 31st 2020 at 17:45:25 GMT +0300

Police officers in Uasin Gishu have arrested five people at Mangula area in Eldoret town on suspicion of peddling bhang.

The arrest came after they were found with more than 450 rolls of bhang.

 In an operation launched by police to eradicate the illegal sale and buying of drugs within the town, the officers razed a structure that was being used by the drug peddlers to conduct their business.

Police said they were acting on a tip from members of the public who complained of increased sale and abuse of drugs within the town.

Central Police Station OCS Mike Lekalaile said that the suspects are in custody and will be arraigned in court for engaging in the sale of illegal drugs once investigations are complete.
