By Wellington G Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent

SANNIQUELLIE, September 3 (LINA) –The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Nimba County detachment has arrested a 40-year-old Guinean for being in possession of counterfeit pharmaceutical and non-consumable chemical drugs valued at about US$5,000.

Making the disclosure to the Liberia News Agency (LINA) in Sanniquellie Wednesday, Nimba County DEA commander Col. Julius Kanubah said the illegal drugs, which were parceled in about six cartons, were intercepted by staff of the Liberia Revenue Authority at the Liberia-Guinea border on Tuesday.

The suspect, only identified as Bility, was caught smuggling the fake medical drugs, including Quinine, Doxycycillin, Oral Contraceptive, Penicillin, Pain Relievers, Syrups and chemicals from Guinea.

Col. Kanubah said the fake drugs had no manufacturing company, location of production, manufacture and expiry dates, among other important information.

He said suspect Bility has been turned over to the Ganta Police Depot for investigation.
