Dealers kept heroin in shoes
Two men caught hiding 1.5kg of heroin inside their shoes have been each given 10 years in jail. Abu Dhabi Criminal Court handed down the sentences to the Pakistani men as they were found guilty of possessing and dealing drugs. Court records stated that Abu Dhabi Police arrested the men in January 2016. A prosecutor earlier told the court that the men aged 44 and 24, were caught in Al Shahama City. They had taken a taxi from another emirate, which was not mentioned in court, and anti-drug squad officers said they intended to deal drugs. One tried to flee after seeing police approach him, but he was caught by officers. Both will be deported to Pakistan on their release.
