The team also includes forensic analysts, crime scene specialists and drug investigators who proceeded to the residence of the foreign nationals earlier arrested in connection with the cocaine saga.
The officer commanding crime at the Port Loko police station, Sergeant I.M. Fofana who joined the team said the investigators spent several hours at the residence where the foreign nationals were arrested. He said finger and footprints and several other traces were also secured.
The Local Unit Commander at the Port Loko police station chief superintendent Kamara called the trip “successful”, adding that it was one of the moves by the police to leave no stone unturned in tracking anyone connected to the cocaine saga.
He said the screening of suspects was professionally handled and that all items discovered on them were recorded accordingly and signed by the owners before they were escorted to police headquarters in Freetown.
