Woman arrested for sneaking bhang to cell
09 January 2013, 16:58
Police in Naivasha are holding a woman who attempted to sneak rolls of bhang to her husband in cell.
The middle-aged woman had hidden the bhang in two loaves of bread and tried to pass them at the suspect who is facing robbery with violence charges before police caught up with her.
The woman broke into tears claiming that she had been given the bread and other personal effects by a relative.
Police could hear none of this and arrested her before she joined her husband later in court to answer charges of being in possession of bhang.
A police officer noted that the bread was heavier that normal and on checking closely, he discovered the bhang that was stuffed inside.
Confirming the incident, Naivasha OCPD Charles Kortok commended his staff for a job well done.
He said that the tearful suspect who claimed to have been sent by a relative will be arraigned in court for being in possession of bhang.
“She had hidden the bhang inside two loaves of bread but our officers who man the cells at the law court managed to arrest her,” he said.
Meanwhile, a middle-aged man is fighting for his life in Kijabe Hospital after the wife burnt his private parts using hot water as he slept.
The father of two was left screaming in pain after the wife scolded him with the water in Mai Mahiu trading center.
According to a witness, the two had quarreled overnight after the man came at night drunk and refused to provide money for food.
“The two have always had differences but yesterday the woman went berserk burning the man with hot water,” said witness.
The man was left nursing serious injuries on the torso and private parts as the wife escaped to unknown destination.
