The suspect, who was caught red-handed in possession of the drug, is currently remanded in police custody and has remained there for four days.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (Kalwa), Venkat Andale, said that Ozeno was arrested on Wednesday following a tip-off which led a team from the Mumbra Police to lay a trap near a dumping ground in Diva and intercepted the suspect.

The police officer said, “The accused had come to Diva to sell the drugs. He is a resident of Kharghar in Navi Mumbai and has been developing his network here.

“Although he didn’t reveal the name or any other information so far, we are waiting for technical details of his phones and by recovering messages to get an idea about the remaining gang.”

The police added that there could be more arrests in the case after they get the report of technical details sent for testing.
