Nguli also reaffirmed the officers’ dedication to combating drug usage and made a stronger plea to the public to work with law enforcement to combat the vice.

He also conveyed to narcotics dealers that their days of operating Probox vans are limited.

Nguli continued by saying that the 32-year-old suspect was frogmarched to the police station and is being held till he is arraigned in court.

The bhang was also placed under police custody and will be produced as an exhibit in court.

According to a statement from the police, the suspects were taken into custody following a tip from locals in the area. The suspects were inside the church at the time and had just killed some goats.
