Police in Nyagatare District, on Friday, arrested a man after he was found trafficking cannabis in a milk container.

Chief Inspector of Police (CIP) Hamdun Twizeyimana, the Police spokesperson for the Eastern region, said that Evode Nyamuberwa had concealed 438 pellets of cannabis in a jerrycan of milk. He was at the time attempting to board a public vehicle to Kigali.

"Nyamuberwa was reported by employees of the travel agency of whose taxi he was trying to board after it was suspected that he had narcotics in his jerrycan of milk," CIP Twizeyimana said.

“He was returning to Kigali where he resides with the narcotics. When Police responded to the call by the employees of the travel agency, they poured milk in another container only to find 438 pellets cannabis in the milk," he added.

CIP Twizeyimana commended the vigilance of the employees of the travel agency.

"Such vigilance plays an important community policing role in identifying tricks used by drug traffickers and breaking chains of supply," said the spokesperson.

Some of the identified tricks used by drug traffickers include wrapping them around their body, women veils, pumpkins and other groceries, tires, and fuel tanks, among others.
