Police in Musanze has arrested a 31-years-old man with 15,004 pallets of marijuana.
The suspect, Medard Muvugabigwi, a motorist, was arrested yesterday, around 8:00PM along the Rubavu-Musanze road.

Muvugabigwi told Police he was paid Frw25, 000 to deliver the drugs to an unidentified person in Musanze town.
Northern Province Police Spokesperson, Chief Superintendent Francis Gahima, said Muvugabigwi was arrested because more efforts have been put in place to crackdown crime in the region.
While drug dealers devise means to evade arrests, Police, with the help of the public, will not give room for the crime to thrive.
“Whatever strategies they may opt for, Police won’t retire from combat this unlawful act”, he said.
If found guilty the suspect could go to jail for three years and pay Rwf500, 000 fine.
