However no arrest has been made so far, but the full particulars of the sender are still under investigation.

“Police officers on duty noted that there were some items inside the curios and they immediately informed CID Drug Officers who upon checking confirmed that both curios contained Cannabis sativa,” Chitonde said.

He added that enquiries were underway to trace the culprit and that if arrested the suspect would be charged with Illegal Exportation of Dangerous Drugs (Cannabis sativa) contrary to Section 11(a) as read with Regulation 19 of the Dangerous Drugs Act.
