The vigilance of a Police Corporal on Tuesday led to a taxi cab, in which a large quantity of substances suspected to be Indian hemp was concealed, being impounded.


The taxi cab with the registration number GT 4442-S  which was transporting the compressed dried leaves, was abandoned in front of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital.

It has been impounded by the Adabraka District Police, with two sacks and over 100 parcels of the substance retrieved from it.
The Police Corporal, who did not want to be named, was part of a taskforce enforcing compliance of the compulsory fire insurance of commercial buildings when he spotted the cab.
He signalled the driver to stop when he saw a cutlass on the back seat.
The driver obliged, only to later escape when the policeman tried to examine his car further.
The officer then discovered some parcels of the compressed dried leaves hidden in the back seat and also in the trunk of the cab.
According to the Ghana News Agency, the taxi cab, which was without an ignition key, was then driven from the Ridge area to the Adabraka Police Station using a screwdriver.
The Commander of the station took delivery of the seized items for further investigations.
