After a hint from unknown source that drug peddlers were using the reefs as their hiding place to conduct their illegal business in Mombasa, the police secretly followed up and got involved in a chase out with the suspects.
As it was an ambush, two of the suspects who seemed not to be sober decided to jump into the waters of the Indian Ocean to try swimming away after a short chase through the reefs as others managed to escape. The two must have really been partners; they were seen swimming in a pair deep into the waters of the ocean.
After realizing that they could not make an escape via their only way, the two decided to surrender to the law enforcers for the waters were too much for them. The two were bundled and taken away.
