Detectives in Mombasa are holding a German national suspected to be trafficking narcotics.

Klans Wurfel was arrested on Friday and booked at Port police station,

A source within the anti-narcotics unit told The Star Warfel is being held pending transportation to JKIA.

"He might be deported after consultations with the embassy. He might have been seized with narcotics but I am not sure about the value or quantity," the source who sought anonymity said.

Others within the department did not comment on the matter saying they were unaware of it.
