Police Inspector Kwabena Oduro-Boateng told the court presided over by Mr William Boampong that the accused was arrested by the police on June 6 at the Dagomba-Line, Kumasi, following a tip off.

He said 40 wraps of the substance were found on him during a search.

They also recovered a large quantity of the dried leaves, concealed in a black polythene bag from his room.

Sample of the dried leaves has been sent to the Forensic Laboratory in Accra for tests and the results are yet to arrive.
