Zgambo said they were arrested on Friday in Area 49 Gulliver where they were staying illegally.
“Police got information from well wishers that the suspects were selling illicit drugs. After getting the information, the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) team acted swiftly and arrested the culprits,” she said.
