Sword-wielding junkies not the sharpest bunch

Four drug users were given a sharp lesson in discreetness in the capital yesterday when their own blunders led to their arrests.

Police first apprehended two suspicious characters armed with a none-too-subtle samurai sword.

A quick search showed the sword wasn’t the only thing they were packing, as cops uncovered drugs as well. Nearby accomplices, panicking at the sign of police, tossed their own baggy of drugs away.

The cops​, who had been so far unaware of their involvement, nabbed the duo too.
