Four men have been accused of attempting to smuggle two million banned pills from the UAE to Saudi Arabia. The group were detained at the Al Ghuwaifat border crossing in May. The Criminal Court in Al Dhafra heard that the main defendant in the case, an Arab national, was driving an SUV when it was pulled over by police and searched. Officers found 2,000,126 narcotic pills of narcotics, a prosecutor said. The vehicle had undergone modifications to allow packages to be hidden in the interior and inside the seats. The defendant took the police to his house, where the other defendants were arrested. All four deny trafficking in drugs.
