A fake identity had been used by the intended recipient in an attempt to hide his identity, said CNB. Further investigations found the intended recipient was the male suspect, and that he had used the assumed name to evade detection.

During his arrest, a search of his residence found more drugs and drug paraphernalia, including cannabis in vegetable, paste and powder forms, as well as 11 pieces of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) stamps.

The suspect is a student, said CNB, adding that investigations are ongoing.
