Jordanian anti-narcotics department foils Captagon smuggling attempt
An attempt to smuggle one million Captagon pills was foiled by the Anti-Narcotics Department (AND) of Jordan. Four alleged drug traffickers were arrested, but the fifth, who lives on a farm in Karak, remains at large, a spokesperson for the Public Security Directorate (PSD) said.
The spokesperson said that after receiving a tip-off indicating that a group of individuals were plotting to smuggle a large quantity of narcotic pills outside the Kingdom, AND officials began an investigation to determine the identity of the suspects and obtain the handover of the narcotics.
Through a new operational phase, the AND is continuing investigations, raids, and arrests of drug dealers, according to the spokesperson. During the past few days, the AND was able to deal with a number of these cases that are still under investigation and will be announced sequentially as the investigation proceeds.
