He said the Unit moved to the location and on seeing the presence of the police, the drug dealers took to their heels but luck eluded Eshun and was arrested by the police.

A search conducted on him by the police revealed 49 wrappers of dried leaves, laboratory tests revealed that, the dried leaves were cannabis weighing 30.0 grams.
