The Assin Fosu Divisional police commander, Chief Supt. Henry B.M Bacho who confirmed the arrest to Adom News said the two teenagers were arrested in a swoop by the Assin Fosu police patrol team upon a tip-off.

Other accomplices who were allegedly selling and smoking the suspected marijuana took to their heels on sensing the presence of the police.

The two young men were eventually apprehended after their senior brother who was allegedly nurturing them, escaped in the said swoop, leaving them behind.

Isaac Arthur was caught with a small bay containing cigarette, and several rolls of suspected marijuana.

However, Kwame Danso, a 16-year-old Anglican School student who was caught in connection with the suspected marijuana, denied knowing anything about the said substance being used as an exhibit for their conviction by the police.
