Bid to smuggle in 26kg of drugs foiled
FUJAIRAH - The Anti-Narcotics Unit of the Fujairah Police Department arrested an Arab national and thwarted an attempt to smuggle 25kg of hashish and 1kg of heroin into the country.
Brigadier Mohammed Ahmed bin Ghanim, Director of Fujairah Police, said it was the second biggest drugs haul in the emirate in a month.
He said the seizure was made following a tip-off by an undercover agent, about a man in his 30s planning to enter the country with drugs. A trap was laid after gathering the details about his movement and the suspect was arrested with the contraband in his possession.
During interrogation, he confessed to the crime. He was referred to the Public Prosecution for further action.
