General Constable Boadi Theophilus, a policeman attached to the Visibility Unit of the Koforidua Central Police Station in the Eastern Region, has been arrested at Apam in the Central Region for allegedly transporting some dried leaves suspected to be Indian Hemp (wee) to Takoradi.

The dried leaves, reportedly concealed in three big bags sealed with a black cellotape, were discovered when the vehicle he was driving got involved in multiple accidents on August 23, 2017.

One person indentified as Emmanuel Mensah, a driver of one of the vehicles, sustained various degrees of injury and was rushed to the Apam Catholic Hospital for treatment.

The Mercedes Benz was being driven by Constable Boadi Theophilus while the Toyota was in the hands of Emmanuel Mensah.

They were all heading towards Mankessim while the Nissan X’Terra with its occupants was returning from Takoradi.

On reaching Gomoa Simbrofo junction, Constable Boadi, who was reportedly over-speeding, attempted to overtake the Toyota Matrix ahead of him, but failed and hit its rear.

When the vehicles were inspected before they were towed to the police station, the personnel discovered two big bags with black cellotape all round them in the Mercedes Benz and the content was suspected to be Indian hemp.
