Mauritius international Kingsley Steward has been arrested for drug dealing after months of being closely watched and trailed by the country’s law enforcement agencies.
As reported by the BBC, a team of the Anti-Drug Smuggling Unit (ADSU) searched the 27-year-old goalkeeper’s home in Port Louis and found 22 doses of heroin and a further one gram of the drug.
Equipment used in the preparation and packaging of heroin, including razor blades and scales, were also seized.
Leopold is the first-choice goalkeeper for Mauritius Professional Football League champions team ASPL 2000. He was also the reserve goalkeeper for the national team during the last Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign.
Both his club and the Mauritius FA have declined to comment on the matter according to BBC though the police have lodged a provisional charge of drug dealing against him.
