According to the facts of the case, the suspect, together with two other persons, was arrested by police patrol at Bindi for possessing 29 guinea fowls and a ram suspected to have been stolen.
Upon further checks it was revealed that the items indeed belonged to one of the suspects, a trader who had sought the assistance of the other two to catch up on a Metro Mass Transit (MMT) bus to Tamale.
But the look on the face of Gunja Innusah on seeing the police prompted them to conduct a thorough search on him, retrieving several wraps of the dried leaves suspected to be cannabis concealed in his pair of trousers and bag.
He was subsequently arrested and in his caution statement admitted to cultivating, consuming and supplying the substance to his clients in and out of the district stating that it was a lucrative venture.
The other two after preliminary investigations were freed by the police, as no charge could be pressed against them and the animals were returned to them.
Gunja Innusah was however arraigned before the court on charges of possessing narcotic drugs without authority and remanded to enable police to conduct further investigations into the matter.
