Detectives have seized a consignment of cocaine worth Ksh.100 million stashed in a house in Utange, Mombasa county.

In an operation conducted by sleuths drawn from the Transnational Organised Crimes and the Anti-Narcotics units, one female suspect identified as Nuru Murshid Mahfud, 29, was also arrested following the thorough operation.

The sleuths are yet to establish whether the drug which was carefully packaged in 35 sachets and concealed in suitcases was meant for local consumption or was on transit to a different destination.

The suspect has been detained at a police station in Mombasa as the undercover agents hunt for her accomplices.

Meanwhile, experts at the Chemistry and Toxicology units based at the DCI National Forensic Laboratory will conduct more tests on the highly addictive drug, the biggest recovery yet in the recent past months.
