The General Directorate of Narcotics Control (GDNC) foiled a large attempt to smuggle over 1.5m amphetamine pills into Saudi Arabia through a truck loaded with corn via Al-Batha port.

In cooperation with UAE and in coordination with the Zakat, Tax and Customs Authority, the drugs were seized in possession of a Saudi and Syrian, in Riyadh.

Preliminary legal measures have been taken against the arrested and duly referred to the public prosecution.
