Two women were apprehended in Saba Saba, Murang’a County while transporting six sacks of marijuana in their station wagon.
The duo was apprehended on Monday evening after a dramatic police chase along the Nakuru-Nyahururu-Nyeri-Murang’a highway, according to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
“Prior to their arrest, the duo had engaged Transnational & Organized Crimes (TOCU) detectives in a high-octane highway race, with the lady behind the steering exhibiting all signs of a Formula 1 finalist,” DCI stated in a report on Monday.
The ladies, whose Toyota Wish was stacked to the brim with the consignment, are said to have evaded police roadblocks on the highway before detectives chased their vehicle and intercepted them.
DCI has established that the consignment was being ferried from Busia to Nairobi.
The duo has since been transferred to the directorate’s headquarters in Nairobi for processing over drug trafficking as they await arraignment on Tuesday.
