Kumasi, July 26, GNA - A Kumasi circuit court has sentenced an 18-year-old kente weaver, caught with 649.47 grams of cannabis, to 10 years imprisonment.
Kwaku Poku pleaded not guilty.
Police Inspector Daniel Opoku told the court presided over by Mr Justice Emmanuel Amo-Yartey that the convict was arrested on October 12 last year by a police-military patrol team.
The prosecution said the team acted on a tip off that Opoku was peddling narcotic drugs at Adanwomase in the Kwabre-East District.
Insp. Opoku said the team arrested Poku with two polythene bags containing dried leaves that were confirmed at the police forensic laboratory to be cannabis.
