Police in Nkhatabay district have arrested a 34 year old man identified as Jonathan Kamanga for being found in possession of cannabis sativa at Sambani lodge in the district.
Police publicist for the district sergeant Ignatius Esau has told this publication that the suspect was arrested when he was trying to coax police officers who were celebrating mother’s day at the lodge to buy cannabis from him.
According to Esau the offender did not know he was marketing his illegal business to police officers since they were in civilian clothes.
“Constable Florida Kolomba together with other police officers were at Sambani lodge celebrating mothers day.”
“The offender offered canabbis sativa to them. Consequently they reported him to other police officers who were patrolling the lodge. They arrested him and seized two cobs and 20 twists of cannabis sativa,” said Esau.
He will appear in court soon to answer charges of being found in possession of cannabis sativa which is contrary to regulation 4A and section 19 of dangerous drugs act.
