Three women found in possession of cannabis over the weekend were denied bail at the Rundu Magistrate's Court yesterday.

The accused, Emilia Kakuhu, Intumba Rafael Domingas, and a minor, were arrested during a Police operation called Operation Lobster.

The police received a tip from community members.

It is alleged that the accused cultivated the plants at their houses.

Upon police arrival at the house at the Ndama location on Friday, two of the suspects fled, and only a minor was found at the house, whom the police took into custody.

The two were later arrested on Saturday.

The suspects, including the minor, were denied bail for further police investigation and the case was postponed to July 5 this year.

The acting Regional Commander applauded the community for their assistance with the tip-off.

Deputy Commissioner Lucia Kahuure warns those engaging in illegal activities to stop forthwith.
