Pune: Two youths posed as civic staffers to buy marijuana and promptly landed in police net on Sunday evening.
One of the suspects wore a PMC staffer’s uniform, while the other wore a reflective jacket. They rode a scooter from Parvati to Khadakwasla, bought 220 grams of marijuana worth Rs2,100 and were returning, when they were stopped at a Haveli police checkpoint at 6.30pm. “We checked the boot of the scooter and found the drugs,” Shelke said.
The duo admitted that the uniform and the reflective jacket that belonged to a PMC employee who had passed away a few months ago. They admitted that they made alterations to the attire and would use it to buy marijuana during the lockdown.
