Abu Dhabi Police, in cooperation with the Ministry of Interior, MoI, have foiled an attempt by two Arab men to smuggle one million Captagon pills into Saudi Arabia.
Authorities said the attempt to smuggle the narcotics via the UAE was intercepted following intelligence shared by security agencies in the Kingdom, which quickly prompted local forces to monitor the movements of the two suspects, between Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.
Colonel Dr. Rashid Mohammad Bu Rasheed, Director of the Criminal Investigation Department at Abu Dhabi Police, praised local anti-drug agencies for their effective cooperation and coordination, under the supervision of the MoI.
The Director of the Criminal Investigation Department reiterated the police's commitment and its capacity to thwart any attempts that threaten the security and safety of the community. - Emirates News Agency, WAM –http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395298543693.html
