The Greater Accra Region's Weija Divisional Police Command has busted a suspect, Christian Danso, 20 years old, for smuggling goods highly suspected to be narcotic drugs into the police cells at the Weija toll booth region on the Accra-Kasoa highway through vigilance.

On January 12, 2022, police officers on duty at the Weija Toll Booth Station detected a strong odor of smoke emanating from the cells.

"The guys on duty immediately conducted a search in the cell and discovered a material hidden in a blanket being used by inmates on remand," ACP Juliana Obeng, the Regional Police Public Relations Officer, stated.

According to preliminary investigations, suspect Christian Danso supplied the substances suspected to be narcotics through a ventilation hole behind the cells building.

The suspect was later apprehended at his hiding in Weija by the Weija Police Divisional Command.

He admitted to committing the crime and illustrated how he delivered the substance through a ventilation opening in the back of the jail building in his caution statement.

The investigation is still underway, and the suspect, along with his other accomplices, will be taken to court, according to ACP Obeng. She reaffirmed the command's commitment to ensuring that all such offenses are investigated in the Region in particular.
