The recovery made last night followed a chase pitting police officers against two occupants of a silver toyota premio registration number KAV 214D, that was ferrying the drugs. This is after the vehicle that was moving at a high speed was flagged down by police manning a roadblock at Kanga area, but its driver defied orders to stop prompting the chase.
However, the chase did not last for long as the vehicle veered off the road, hit a tree and landed in a ditch a few kilometers away. The two occupants immediately disembarked from the car and fled into nearby thickets inside the Tsavo national park,” said DCI
