Smug­gling

Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Border se­cu­rity men ar­rested a Pak­istani who hid a quan­tity of heroin in a truck at Nuwaiseeb border out­let. Po­lice were able to trace him as there was blood from cuts he suf­fered after climb­ing over barbed wire. The Pak­istani driver es­caped while cus­toms of­fi­cers were search­ing the truck. The drugs were hid­den in a fire extinguisher. Sep­a­rately, Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Air­port cus­toms of­fi­cers foiled an Egyptian man’s at­tempt to smug­gle 20,000 Tra­madol tablets hid­den in a vest he was wear­ing. Of­fi­cers no­ticed he was very ner­vous near the lug­gage pick-up area, so they stopped and searched his lug­gage, but did not find any­thing. But he was get­ting more tense, so they searched him phys­i­cally and found the drug in the lin­ing of his vest. The sus­pect was ar­rested and sent to con­cerned au­thor­i­ties.
