It’s his sleazy look that caught the attention of the officers. Westley Assonne Steward, 35, was arrested by the Criminal Investigation Division of Grand Bay on Thursday October 27.
Eight doses of heroin were found in his genitals. The young man appeared in Pamplemousses court on Friday October 28. An interim charge dealing with dangerous drugs has been brought against him. He was renewed in police cell.
At the police station, the resident of Grand-Baie initially denied the charge against him. After a lengthy interrogation, he finally admitted that he purchased the drug in Port Louis for resale. However, he did not denounce his dealer.
The officers were then subjected to a body search. The eight doses of heroin were carefully concealed in a box. A sum of Rs 3500 in small bills was also found on him. The home of the thirties was raided. Objects suspected of being linked to drug were seized.
