Mr Tetteh said the police suspected all the items were Indian hemp.
He said the police also found five pairs of scissors and two metal leave crushers when further checks were conducted in a kiosk which served as Adam’s place of abode.
During interrogation, Mr Tetteh said Adams told the police that he received the items from Hohoe in the Volta Region through the driver of a commercial vehicle.
He is said to have also told the police that he would be able to identify the driver but he could not provide his name.
Mr Tetteh said the police had since commenced investigations into the case.
He also appealed to the public to help the police flush out such miscreants from their communities by giving information on them.
