The owner of a vehicle which transported a stock of Cannabis valued at approximately Rs. 10 million on the Southern Expressway has been remanded until 24th of this month.

That was when the suspect was produced before the Baddegama Acting Magistrate Thilakshi Wasana Sooriyarachchi, yesterday.

Police on suspicion had requested this vehicle which exited the highway through the Baddegama exit, to stop but it had continued to drive away.

Later, a resident of the area had informed the Police that a group who had arrived in another car had thrown into the jungle area near the Christhudewa Primary School Baddegama road, three full sacks.

Then the Police had gone to the spot and carried out an inspection, whereupon it was revealed that these sacks contained Kerala Cannabis. During further investigations, 28 kilograms of Cannabis were discovered.

Subsequently the number of vehicle had been checked and it was revealed that it belonged to a 32 year old woman, a resident of Gonapinuwala – Majuwana – Keradevala which was the same vehicle which had sped away from the Baddegama exit without heeding orders to halt.

The suspect was taken into custody at her home and she had told the Police that she had hired out this particular vehicle to someone else.

However, due to the suspect failing to provide any information about the individual to whom the vehicle had been hired out, she was taken into custody and produced before the Courts, a top official of the Baddegama Police told the Hiru News Division.
