A Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) Master's degree student linked with running a drug and robbery syndicate has been arrested in Nyeri.
The suspected druglord was nabbed in one of his hideouts at Karia Dam following a sting operation, according to police sources.
Nyeri County Police Commander Adiel Nyange said the IT student was found with more than 40 kilos of bhang, two stolen motorcycles and illicit brew.
Nyange said police pounced on the suspect while he was about to meet a supplier of the drugs.
"But on spotting us he dived into the dam and dumped the drugs. Our officers dived after him and apprehend him before recovering the drugs," Mr Nyange said.
The suspected drug dealer had rented two houses at Asian Quarters and Kamakwa estates costing Sh.15,000 and Sh.8,500 per month respectively.
“He has been using the houses as a distribution point for the drugs besides brewing the illicit alcohol," said Nyange adding that more drugs and over Sh.55,000 were found there.
