Sabah Al-Salem securitymen arrested a citizen for trading in drugs with 12 packets of crystal meth (shabu) in his possession. Acting on a tip-off, the officers arranged an entrapment to verify the information. An undercover agent made an agreement with the suspect to buy an undisclosed quantity of narcotics and the suspect was arrested upon completion of the bogus transaction. The officers found the above-mentioned narcotics and some drug paraphernalia in the possession of the suspect during his arrest. He was referred to the concerned security unit for prosecution.
Meanwhile, the General Customs Department on Sunday issued a decision allowing the import of all types, shapes and flavors of electronic ‘shisha’ (hubbly-bubbly). On Saturday, Customs officers at Nuwaiseeb Border referred a citizen to the concerned authorities as he attempted to enter the country with a big quantity of electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and different flavors.
