drug dealer makes daring escape from DEC offices

A drug dealer yesterday leisurely strolled out of the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) headquarters in Lusaka after he pulled out a gun during interrogation and sent officers scampering for life.

According to DEC insiders, the drug dealer, whose name has been withheld for security reasons, had been on the Commission’s wanted list from the time he was released from prison a few months ago.

Following a tip-off, DEC officers managed to catch up with the ex-convict in the Lusaka bottleneck traffic last week but the experienced criminal managed to run off on foot, leaving his pursuers only with his motor vehicle full of marijuana along with an AK 47 magazine and ammunition.

Determined to cage their client, DEC enlisted the help of a police officer from Chelston Police Station who managed to track the drug dealer and convinced him to go to the the DEC offices, saying they were ready to hand him back his vehicle because it was gotten as a result of mistaken identity.
