Driver remanded for dealing in ‘wee’

A 27-year-old driver has been remanded into prison custody by the Nkawie Circuit Court for selling and smoking substances suspected to be Indian hemp at a cemetery.

 Godfred Gyamfi was arrested at the Abuakwa-Maakro cemetery by the police who were carrying out an operation in communities in the Atwima-Nwabiagya South Municipality, to clamp down on suspected criminal activities and to nab ‘wee’ smokers.

The plea of Gyamfi was not taken, and he would reappear before the court presided by Mr Johnson Abbey on February 18, this year.    

Detective Inspector Francis Opoku told the court that Gyamfi was arrested during a Police operation on January 24, this year,  but his accomplices escaped.

The court heard that the police retrieved 53 wrappers of leaves suspected to be ‘wee’ in Gyamfi’s bag and GH¢ 1,000.00 believed to be sales from ‘wee’ from his pocket.

Insp Opoku said Gyamfi admitted the offence in his cautioned statement, and the police asked the court to remand suspect, to enable the police continue investigations.-GNA
