Podi Lasee’s henchmen held

Two suspects dealing in heroin were arrested on a tip-off, in Magawela in the Meetiyagoda Police division, on Saturday.

The two suspects had six grams and 300 milligrams of heroin in their possession at the time of arrest.

They were identified as Devamuni Vijith Ananda de Zoysa (41) of Magawela, Meetiyagoda and Angampodi Saman Priyantha (20) of Kuleegoda, Ambalangoda.

At the preliminary police investigations, it came to light that the two suspects were henchmen of underworld figure Podi Lasee and were released a few days previously on bail after being in jail for a period of time.

The suspects were to be produced before the Balapitiya Magistrate last Saturday by the Meetiyagoda Police, who are investigating the case.
