- DCI says the woman was found with 60 pellets of heroine at her home in Kayole area.
- The suspect is said to have been in possession of a job identification card indicating she is a nurse at Mbagathi Hospital.
suspected drug trafficker was on Tuesday busted in Kayole, Nairobi with pellets that are believed to have contained heroin.
According to a report by DCI, 42-year-old Beatrice Awuor, “is believed to have been preparing to ingest the 60 pellets of the highly addictive drug for shipment, to an unknown destination.”
Acting on intelligence obtained through the DCI hotline, transnational organized crime detectives ambushed her at her house within Kayole and seized three passports from the house after searching it.
Two of those passports are believed to be her accomplices’ and they were registered under the names Caroline Adongo Mujibi and Risper Auma Ochieng. The other passport was hers.
“Upon further scrutiny, the sleuths managed to identify one of the passports as that of a drug trafficker, who has an ongoing case in court,” says DCI.
Other items that were recovered from the scene are plants, a digital weighing scale presumed to be the one used to measure the illegal drug and a work identification card identifying Beatrice Awuor Odhiambo as a nurse at Mbagathi Hospital.
The alleged heroin pellets were handed over to anti-narcotics experts based at DCI headquarters, for forensic analysis and the scene documented by crime scene personnel based at DCI-Kayole.
