Police in Thika have netted bhang and drugs worth over Ksh. 300,000 at Kiganjo estate in Thika.
However, the bhang peddlers fled leaving a pink cat “guarding” the house, a thing that stunned many residents.
The raw bhang which was in form of seeds was stashed in two and half sacks and hidden under the bed of the one single room house.
Also recovered were drugs in form of tablets believed to be the ones used to intoxicate drunkards in Thika night clubs and other drinking joints a thing that is common following the increase of commercial sex workers.
Police also recovered apparatus for making rizla bhang rolls and photos of the suspected criminals.
The operation was led by Thika West DCC Tom Anjere who cautioned landlords that they will be responsible for illegal acts of their tenants.
“We can’t keep on reiterating every now and then that every landlord should have clear records and documents of all his tenants yet others are not keen on the matter,” said an angry Anjere.
“From now henceforth, every landlord will be required to keep a clear record of all his or her tenants who will be required to fill forms indicating all their details and Identity cards,” he added.
Anjere said police have launched manhunt for the suspects but said they have a hint that the main suspect is in the wanted list adding that he is the one said to have been supplying bhang and drugs in Thika region.
He thanked wanainchi for the co-operation and called on those with information on the whereabouts of the suspects to share with security agents saying the information would be treated with a lot of confidentiality.
