Saudi arrests 10 for attempt to smuggle amphetamine pills

Spokesman for the General Directorate of Narcotics Control (GDNC) Major Mohammed Al-Nujaidi said Saudi authorities foiled an attempt to smuggle 3,510,000 amphetamine pills into the country. The drugs were found hidden in a shipment of stones and gardening supplies at Jeddah Islamic Port.

Three Turkish residents, another unidentified resident, a person on a visitor’s visa, a Syrian on an Umrah visa, and four Saudis were arrested in connection with the drug haul. They all have been referred to the Public Prosecution, Al-Nujaidi said.

The operation was carried out in cooperation with the Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority.
