A 33-year-old lady might just be joining her lover in prison as she as caught smuggling illicit drugs for her imprisoned boyfriend.
The suspect, Gifty Addo, was arrested at the Kumasi Central Prisons for attempting to smuggle tramadol and a substance suspected to be cannabis (weed) to an inmate.
The Daily Guide Newspaper reports that the suspect concealed the weed and Tramadol in a stew which she was sending to her lover Yaw Odoom who is serving a three-year jail term at the Kumasi Central Prison.
In her attempt to elude wardens at the jail, she carefully concealed the illegal substance in the offals (animal intestines), which she used to prepare the stew.
She was apprehended by a vigilant female prisons officer at the main entrance of the prison as she was being checked before entry.
A thorough search of the stew by the female prison officer found that it was laced with 13 mini parcels of dried leaves, believed to be cannabis and 10 blister packs of Tramadol 225mg in the stew.
The boyfriend of the suspect was said to have been selling narcotic drugs to inmates of the prison for some time now.
A tear-eyed Gifty was arrested on the spot and referred to the Drug Law Enforcement Unit of the Ghana Police Service, in the Ashanti Region for further investigations and prosecution.
Confirming the arrest, DSP Jeremiah Alale in an interview with Kumasi based radio station, Ultimate FM, said the matter would be investigated further and sanctions would be duly applied.
