Man, 18, Arrested After Botched Attempt to Smuggle Drugs into Accra Central Police Cell

An 18-year-old man identified only as Enoch is in the grips of police in Accra after being caught following a brave but failed attempt to smuggle drugs to his friends at the Accra Central Police Cells. The items he attempted to smuggle in were dried leaves suspected to be narcotics, 19 sticks of Ruthmans cigarettes, 5 sachets of Draspan, 10 (Blue Blue), Tramadol and a king size blue paper. Enoch reportedly concealed the substances in a pure water bag in his effort to get them over the bar to his friends as he visited them in the cells but he ran out of luck as the officers searched the bag to retrieve the items. 

It is the second time in about a month that someone has made an attempt to smuggle things to suspects kept in custody at police cells. In July, an unidentified lady of 23 years escaped arrest after officers stationed at the Cantonment Police Station searched a food pack she brought to a remand prisoner only to realise it contained a locally manufactured pistol and a cartridge. She however to took to her heals before the officers could make any meaningful attempt to arrest her.
