Three suspects with heroin nabbed

Mihintale police arrested three suspects including a jailor with over three heroin grams recently.

They had cheated a sibling of one of the suspect of Rs. 14,000 to buy the drugs, police said.

The suspects were arrested on a complaint made by a sister of one suspect that her brother had cheated her of Rs. 14,000. Two of the three suspects had told her that they were from the bank from where she borrowed money to buy a three-wheeler and that she had to deposit Rs. 14,000 as defaulted installments for her three-wheeler or it will be seized. Disturbed, she had deposited the money into a bank account number given by a suspect. She later came to know that the account number was not of the bank she borrowed the money from but a personal account number and had complained to police.

The jailor has been addicted to drugs for about two years, police said.

The suspects had used many illegal methods to find money to continue their habit, police said.

The suspects were to be produced before the Anuradhapura Magistrate Court yesterday. Mihintale police are investigating.
