24 Year-Old Man Arrested With 17 grams of Cocaine Worth Ksh 1.8M Hidden In His Shoes

A 24-year-old individual, identified as Charles Obaga Kavehere, has been apprehended following his arrest in Thika. He was found in possession of 417 grams of cocaine, valued at approximately Ksh.1.8 million, which he had concealed within his shoes.

This arrest took place after detectives from the Anti-Narcotics Unit (ANU), acting on intelligence information, intercepted a Score Investment Ltd bus traveling from Moyale to Nairobi.

The ANU detectives, supported by the Operations Support Unit, conducted a search on the bus at the Blue Post section of Thika, leading to the arrest of Charles Obaga Kavehere. Following his apprehension, Kavehere was transported to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) for further screening.

During this process, it was discovered that in addition to the 417 grams of cocaine found in his shoes, he had also ingested a quantity of drugs with the intention of expelling them at his destination.

Kavehere remains under the custody of ANU officials while they await the expulsion of the drugs he consumed.
