Bahrain: Police arrest 11 drug peddlers

The Public Prosecution has opened an investigation into the arrest of an 11-member gang involved in growing marijuana plants and storing narcotic drugs for sale inside Bahrain.

The arrests followed an investigation into a tip-off received at the Drug Crimes Unit at the Public Prosecution Office.

An investigation resulted in the arrest and seizure of cocaine, hashish and tools used for growing marijuana plants. Crime scene experts analysed the drugs seized and the residence of the suspects.
