10 kg mar­i­juana smug­gling foiled

Kuwait Times - - FROM THE ARABIC PRESS -

Air cargo cus­toms of­fi­cers caught an Egyp­tian man who at­tempted to smug­gle 10 kg of mar­i­juana in a ship­ment of food he im­ported from In­dia. In­for­ma­tion was re­ceived about the ship­ment, so of­fi­cers fol­lowed it un­til it ar­rived at Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Air­port. The sus­pect went to re­ceive it, but cus­toms of­fi­cers were wait­ing for him. When the con­tainer was un­loaded, 10 kg of mar­i­juana was found in hard-tofind places, a se­cu­rity source said. The man said he im­ported the drugs with in­ten­tion of traf­fick­ing, so he was sent to the Drugs Con­trol Gen­eral Depart­ment (DGCD) for fur­ther ac­tion.

Stray dogs

Hawally de­tec­tives re­turned some dogs to their owner who promised to care for them, af­ter they es­caped from his house and went to a girls’ school in Salwa, which scared stu­dents and teach­ers. A se­cu­rity source said the school prin­ci­pal called op­er­a­tions about the pres­ence of dogs at the school, so po­lice went there and took the dogs to Salwa po­lice sta­tion. De­tec­tives were then sur­prised by a cit­i­zen claim­ing that the dogs were his and ex­pen­sive, and had es­caped from his house in the morn­ing. Po­lice took an un­der­tak­ing from him and re­turned the dogs af­ter the school prin­ci­pal opted against fil­ing a com­plaint.

Of­fi­cer in­sulted

A man who went to Maidan Hawally po­lice sta­tion to com­plain against his ex-wife ended up in jail, charged with threat­en­ing and in­sult­ing a pub­lic em­ployee. A se­cu­rity source said that a sergeant told the in­ves­ti­ga­tor that an Egyp­tian man en­tered the po­lice sta­tion to com­plain against his ex-wife, but when asked what had hap­pened, he started scream­ing at the of­fi­cer and swore at him. He then banged his head against the wall, than af­ter he was calmed down, he hit him­self with the desk. He is be­ing ques­tioned.

By-elec­tions

Se­cu­rity sources said sev­eral cit­i­zens are wanted to ap­pear be­fore the pros­e­cu­tion for or­ga­niz­ing and par­tic­i­pat­ing in by-elec­tions in the fourth con­stituency. De­tec­tives’ in­ves­ti­ga­tions re­vealed that some tribes are or­ga­niz­ing by­elec­tions in di­waniyas and be­hind closed doors.

Toys stolen

Jabriya po­lice sta­tion in­ves­ti­ga­tor or­dered an In­dian man’s name be placed on the wanted list af­ter he stole 31 toys, each val­ued at KD 18. A se­cu­rity source said a cit­i­zen, a toy shop owner, told them his em­ployee had dis­ap­peared, then when he checked the in­ven­tory, 31 toys were miss­ing.

Theft

Po­lice ar­rested a bedoon who posed as a de­tec­tive and stole KD 50 in ad­di­tion to a com­puter from Asian work­ers in in­dus­trial Shuwaikh. The bedoon en­tered the shop where the In­di­ans work with a stick and asked them for money, but they re­fused. He stole a wal­let that was on the ta­ble with KD 50 in it and the com­puter. The In­di­ans caught and tied him up, and he was ar­rested by po­lice.— Al-Rai and Al-An­baa
