RUNDU, 31 JAN (NAMPA) – A former police officer and accomplice were arrested here on Friday for possession of cannabis found in the car they were travelling in.
The two were driving around town and police stopped the car after they became suspicious of its registration number, said Namibian Police Force (NamPol)’s acting Regional Crime Investigations’ Coordinator for Kavango East, Detective Chief Inspector Chrispin Mubebo.
“According to our system, the vehicle - a blue Toyota Corrolla - was barring the same registration number as a red Toyota Conquest,” he told Nampa on Sunday.
Upon searching the vehicle, the police found parcels of cannabis stuffed in the door panels of the sedan. Four parcels were found in the front right door and four in the front left door. Police found one parcel of cannabis underneath the car.
Mubebo said the Rundu Police are still busy with its festive season crime prevention operation, and are vigilant of any suspicious looking vehicles. Such vehicles are pulled into the police station and a thorough search is conducted.
The two men are not first-time offenders and have been arrested for house breaking and theft before. They are expected to appear in the Rundu Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
