Police in Thika have arrested three middle-aged men at a construction site in Ngoingwa Estate.
The three are reported to have been growing bhang, ostensibly for personal and commercial use.
The three suspects are said to have taken advantage of the construction site to grow the plants without detection.
According to the Thika Sub-County Deputy Police Commander Daniel Kitavi, officers handling the operation also recovered a stash of items believed to have been stolen elsewhere and hidden within the mansion.
Among those arrested is the property’s caretaker and his two accomplices who are reported to have been cultivating the plants together.
