Saudi border guards have foiled an attempt to smuggle half a million illegal pills into the Kingdom … by camel. The drugs were loaded on the creature’s back before trying to cross the Saudi border at Halat Ammar.
The bags contained a total of 518,000 tablets of the amphetamine “Captagon.” All security measures against the smuggler were taken immediately in cooperation with other security agencies.
Border Guard Spokesman Col. Saher bin Mohammed Al-Harbi said electronic monitoring systems spotted a man riding a camel trying to cross the Kingdom’s land border with Jordan. The Sudanese man was arrested while trying to bury four bags that were loaded on the camel’s back.
