“The officers signaled the driver of the vehicle to stop but he defied the orders and sped off at breakneck speed and upon reaching Magena area, he made a quick U-turn back towards Kanyenye,” said the DCI.

Upon realizing he was being trailed, the driver is said to have abandoned the vehicle within Metembe area and escaped on foot.

The vehicle was towed to Kenyeye Police Station and a detailed search was conducted.

“The illegal consignment together with the vehicle were all placed in police custody pending further investigations,” said the DCI.
