Detectives in Narok County have arrested 12 suspected drug dealers and seized bhang worth Sh500, 000 following a tip-off from the members of the public.

Confirming the arrest, Narok County Police Commander Kizito Mutoro said the suspects included a notorious woman ;who is believed to be the mastermind of the gang.

The gang was arrested in Narok Town.

The bhang, Mutoto said, was being transported from the Tanzania border to other parts of the country.

“This is like a middle ground because the drug was being transported from the Tanzania border towards the coastal regions” he said.

The police boss warned that drug abuse has been on the rise in the region and was ruining the lives of youths, more so, Maasai Mara University students who in many instances have been arrested in possession of the illegal drug.
