Kyuso DC Peter Maina has urged traffic police to inspect all vehicles operating in the area in the wake of increased criminal activity.
He issued the order following the impounding by police of a bread distribution van that was transporting charcoal. The DC lamented yesterday that unscrupulous businessmen were transporting charcoal using unconventional means.
"The lorry we impounded distributes bread in Kyuso," said the DC. "It was carrying some crates of bread to disguise the 30 sacks of charcoal.
Maina said the illegal business has been going on for some time now. He said the lorry was impounded at Kamusiliu and the crew did not have a permit to transport the charcoal. The lorry was taken to Kyuso Police Station. The crew is will be taken to court.
