The Joint Security assisted by local community members in Monrovia have arrested the head of the Presidential Police Escort Detail, Perry Dolo and another Liberian Augustine N. Saah along with a Sierra Leonean Korma Gilbanilla and a Guinean Mohammed S. Bah for allegedly transporting more than 297kg of green leafy substance believed to be marijuana.

According to a release issued by Acting Police Commander, Rose Stryker, Supt. Dolo and the three others were arrested at the Tennie Check Point in Grand Cape Mount County along the Liberia-Sierra Leone Border.

The release quoted as saying that while Security were pursuing the Presidential vehicle, Supt. Dolo abandoned the police vehicle and fled the scene, leaving his colleagues in the alleged crime, but was later apprehended in a nearby abandoned building by the Joint Security.

The release also quoted Acting Police Commander as saying that the Government of Liberia takes seriously the issue of transitional crime very seriously as the Joint Security Team has been closely monitoring all vehicles, including Police and other Government vehicles entering and exiting the borders and territorial lines of Liberia.

Meanwhile, Supt. Dolo and his Co-conspirators along with the confiscated green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, have been turned over to the Drug Enforcement Agency for further investigation.
