Man jailed 10yrs for ‘wee’

A carpenter caught with marijuana, has been sen-tenced by a Kumasi circuit court to 10 years imprisonment in hard labour.

Kwabena Ankamah pleaded guilty to the offence.

Police Superintendent Regina Addo-Yobo told the court, presided over by Mrs. Helen Vivian Amoah that Ankamah was arrested by a police highway patrol team at about 1.45 p.m. on November 22.

The psychoactive drug had been compressed into three parcels and concealed on a Metro Mass transit bus, heading to Kumasi from Sunyani.

Supt. Addo-Yobo said Anka-mah, in his caution statement readily admitted ownership of the stuff and mentioned Kwame Agyemeng at Drobo in the Brong-Ahafo Region, as his source of supply.

The prosecution said samples sent for forensic examination were confirmed to be marijuana.
