Two men on Friday were arrested at Tsumkwe settlement after they were allegedly found in possession of four large parcels of skunk cannabis in their vehicle.

Namibian Police Force head of community affairs in the Otjozondjupa Region, Inspector Maureen Mbeha in an interview with Nampa on Saturday said the suspects are a 24-year-old Namibian and 32-year-old Angolan national.

The two suspects were arrested after the police stopped their vehicle at approximately seven kilometres west of Tsumkwe settlement on the Tsumkwe-Grootfontein gravel road.

The vehicle was searched by the police, and four large parcels with skunk cannabis weighing 2 670 grams, with an estimated street value of N.dollars 133 500 were discovered in the vehicle, said Mbeha.

The two were arrested for dealing in cannabis and possession of prohibited drugs, while the white Toyota RunX sedan was impounded and is kept at Tsumkwe Police Station, added Mbeha.

The two are expected to appear in the Tsumkwe Periodical Court on Monday.

Police investigations in the matter continue.
