Drug over­dose kills young­ster

Kuwait Times - - Local -

KUWAIT: A young man died of an over­dose while an­other barely made it to the hos­pi­tal and was saved. The two were us­ing drugs when the in­ci­dent took place, and led to the ar­rest of the sec­ond sus­pect. Po­lice re­ceived a call about a death in Hawally, so po­lice and paramedics re­sponded and dis­cov­ered that the death was the re­sult of an over­dose. De­tec­tives then found out an­other per­son was re­ceiv­ing treat­ment at Mubarak Hos­pi­tal. He was placed under cus­tody, and po­lice are wait­ing for his con­di­tion to im­prove so he can face le­gal ac­tion.

Pros­ti­tutes caught

Po­lice ar­rested two Ro­ma­nian pros­ti­tutes who en­tered the coun­try on visit visas and were charg­ing KD 200 per hour. Vice po­lice re­ceived tips about the two women who made ap­point­ments over the In­ter­net, so an un­der­cover agent was asked to con­tact them, and an ap­point­ment was made for Satur­day night. The source went to the ho­tel in Salmiya and waited in the lobby for 20 min­utes. A woman then ar­rived and asked him whether he wanted to go with one or both. The agent made an agree­ment as in­structed by de­tec­tives and went with her to her room, where he handed her marked notes. De­tec­tives who re­ceived a sig­nal from the agent then raided the room and caught the two women red­handed. They said they had al­ready ren­dezvoused with 11 men prior to the un­der­cover agent, adding this was their first time in Kuwait.

Di­waniya fight

Two men who were at a di­waniya to of­fer con­do­lences started a fight, as oth­ers tried to break it up. A source said a cit­i­zen told po­lice he was beaten and in­sulted by his rel­a­tive in front of oth­ers. Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing.

Of­fi­cer busted smok­ing En­vi­ron­ment po­lice caught a po­lice cap­tain light­ing a cig­a­rette in­side his sta­tion, and is­sued him a ci­ta­tion that was sent to the au­thor­ity. A source said en­vi­ron­ment of­fi­cers made a sur­prise visit to the po­lice sta­tion to make sure of com­pli­ance with en­vi­ron­men­tal laws, when they no­ticed smoke was em­a­nat­ing from the of­fi­cer’s room. The source said the of­fi­cer will be re­ferred to the pros­e­cu­tion un­less a fine is paid.

Smug­gling foiled

A man was caught with 21 pieces of hashish while at­tempt­ing to enter Kuwait through the Ab­daly bor­der cross­ing. Cus­toms of­fi­cers no­ticed the Filipino was ner­vous while driv­ing his truck through the gate. They searched him phys­i­cally, but noth­ing was found. They then searched the truck and found the drugs in the cabin. The man was ar­rested and told au­thor­i­ties he was plan­ning to sell the il­licit sub­stance in Kuwait. He was sent to con­cerned au­thor­i­ties.


Fire­men pre­vented a catas­tro­phe when they put out a fire a cit­i­zen started at his par­ents’ house. The sus­pect’s par­ents lodged a com­plaint against him, adding that he has a file at the psy­chi­atric hos­pi­tal.
