KUWAIT CITY, Dec 6: Nar­cotic of­fi­cers from the Gen­eral Depart­ment of Drug Con­trol ar­rested a drug baron in pos­ses­sion of 63 kilo­grams of hashish and shabu, which he care­fully kept hid­den in a hole at a live­stock pen in Kabd area.

The Depart­ment of Pub­lic Re­la­tions and Se­cu­rity Me­dia at Min­istry of In­te­rior stated that un­der­cover agents kept tab on the ac­tiv­i­ties of the sus­pect con­cern­ing do­mes­tic drug trade and gath­ered enough ev­i­dence in that re­gard. He was busted while vis­it­ing the area to re­trieve the drugs for sale after the of­fi­cers had se­cured a war­rant to search the hide­out that served as il­licit drug stor­age in­stead of a live­stock pen. He had kept the con­tra­band in two boxes in­side the hole, and ad­mit­ted the of­fense upon his ar­rest. He has since been re­ferred to the con­cerned author­ity for pros­e­cu­tion.
