Nurse Arrested With Heroin: Mbagathi Hospital.

DCI sleuths have seized 60 pellets of suspected heroin from a suspected drug trafficker on Tuesday in Kayole.

the suspect, Beatrice Awuor who works at the Mbagathi Hospital as a nurse was preparing to ingest the pellets in order to transport them to an unknown location according to a police report.

“Transnational organized crime detectives acting on information received via our #FichuakwaDCI hotline stormed her house in Nasra area within Kayole and pounced on the 42-year-old trafficker,” the police report says.

Detectives found three passports after checking her home: hers and two others belonging to Caroline Adongo Mujibi and Risper Auma Ochieng, who are suspected of being her accomplices.

“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,” the police report adds.

A job identity card which was also recovered during the operation identified the mastermind- Ms. Awuor as a nurse working at the Mbagathi Hospital.

A digital weighing scale was also found, which was presumably used to weigh the narcotics.

Crime scene investigators from DCI-Kayole documented the scene, and the pellets turned over to anti-narcotics experts from DCI headquarters for forensic analysis.

Via tweeter, DCI said “We thank the caller who in fulfilling his patriotic duty, made the call to our officers who acted promptly and arrested the traffickers. Should you have any information that you would wish to share with us anonymously, kindly call our agents on #FichuakwaDCI 0800722203.”
